The top of the block and head get so hot that you can't touch them.Even the mid to lower section of the block gets very hot.I have another C and it doesn't get as hot.It is starting to knock as it gets hot.
The new temp.gauge only gets up to about 150deg.
Do they do this when the t-stat is bad,or is it something else?

Well not to say you don't have some problem but 180 to 200 degrees is where they are supposed to run. My AC manual says 170 to 190 for gas, 190 to 200 for low octane fuel. It states," The minimum operating temperatures are 170 for gas, 190 for low octane fuel."

Hi Dave: Ihad the same problem with my C last week, came on all of a sudden and I just re-built motor ( not good with only 4 hours on new rings).Iremoved thermostat and did not help, finally pulled radiator and found it clogged, had to back flush it and found Mr. Mouse stole some of my shop insulation for a home. After I got it together it runs about 165 with no thermostat. Now I can go to Gilmores at the Gathering Of The Orange this month. steve

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
