Re: Overheating Problem
Stuck thermostat or they put in a sbc thermostat instead of the one for a lt1? Try grab the upper radiator hose when it's running hot. You should feel the coolant running. If not my guess is thermostat.
Mine hardly runs over 190 with electric water pump and 160 thermostat. However, it did run close to red when the original radiator was clogged or going bad.
