Re: Can an engine run too cool?
Initial at 15 degrees, 30 all in at 3000. I have a very light vacuum can on the distributor. 8 degrees on the distrib, 16 on the crank. Ported to the manifold. 46 total at cruise, 31 at idle. 323 block, 215 heads.ported, bigger valves, stock manifold with a cut down plenum, port matched, stock manifolds, Sean Murphy prepped quadrajet for the build. Do you think the auto trans cooler in the stock radiator kept the coolant warmer? Also, the water pump must move some pretty good volume. I picked up the 180 thermosat and a set of plugs one range hotter. I sky hydraulic roller:
Valve Lift Int/Ext. 0.553/0.578
Valve Lash Hot Int/Ext. 0.000
ADV Duration Int/Ext. 275/284
0.050 Duration Int/Ext. 228/238
Lobe Center 112
