Lets see if yours continues to go down. I made the change 3500 miles ago.

Hey just wanted to say , I designed a brand new after market Radiator just
for our 4.0 motors, Its 3 quarts larger an x2 times the cooling capacity of that little stock unit . And it fits in the same space with no modifications
look I show you . Now that's a awesome Radiator'' . I needed something
bigger because I live out here in the desert, at temps of 125 in Death Valley
an in Ridgecrest normal its around 114 . And this new Stroker motor runs
a little hotter than a stock motor .

But because I designed this new radiator, I DO NOT GET ANY ROYALITYS
just for mention it , and Iam not a SALE'S MEN OF ANY KIND . Wate I have to go back an edit some pic's . I have more .
I had to say that, because I don't anyone to thank Iam getting something
for it . Becouse Iam not . Actually I got screwed for making it .

It probably would be helpful to have a part number and how to go about getting it. Doesn't seem to be anything listed on Griffin's site.

To the OP have you tried pressure testing the cooling system yet? After the rebleed with the system topped off, a pressure tester would definitely prove if its leaking or not.

When I did the stroker build I replaced the head with 0330 TUPY casting. The old head had a crack between cyl 3 and 4. Probably explains why I had a piston skirt blow on #3

New cap and everything. Just had the pressure test done and all is fine with it. Heater core ok to. Tech says it should be setting down now so not to panic and wait a few more weeks and see what happens. He did note that my mixture was a tad weak so he drained the overflow bottle and added straight HOAT coolant to it.
