Ok, make sence. Thats interesting. Do you happen to know a part number for a replacement? I know its working somewhat because while the engine is running I can pinch the hose and it dies.
Just finished a few major things tonight...
Fresh oil change
Transmission Filter plus oil change
New fan clutch (old one was bad)
New temp gauge (old one died)
New ground #6 stranded from firewall to fuel rail bolt.
So far she starts right up, and shifting is smooth. Oil pressure is about 35psi to 40psi idle. WOT its around 50psi to 60psi. New fan clutch installed, I hope this starts to get my temp normalized! She ran cold tonight on my 4 block test drive. I dont think she went over 190 degrees. Then again it is only 46 degress outside right now. Will have to see how she does one a warmer day.
