24. Doesn't seem to be overfilled. Loose fan belt might be the cause, but I don't know how to tension it further. The fan I have sucks in air, and doesn't blow it out from the engine side. Should I get a different fan? I don't see any way to install the one I have such that it would reverse air flow.

25. Thermostat seems to be installed correctly to my knowledge. Pointy side toward the radiator. I tested it on the stove before I installed it. It opened between 180 and 190.

35. It is there.

" I don't know how to tension it further. "

Get a shorter belt.

You need 1/2" flex at the midpoint on the belt; no more, no less.

Do you know a good place that I can buy belts of odd sizes? I have the 44 1/8" belt so I was thinking of getting four or five different belts in quarter inch increments to see what will fit best.

Loosen the tension adjustment & push the alternator all the way in. Then pull it out about 1". Get the wife's fabric measuring tape & measure it. Or use a piece of string. Take the old belt to NAPA, Advance, etc & tell them you want one of that diameter in X inches.
