Couple new parts. My radiator overflow wasnít big enough to support the amount of fluid expansion I was having, so I got a factory one from a 97 Chevy 1500, essentially what this motor would have come out of. Itís like a gallon reservoir compared to my aluminum one is about 1L-ish






Iíll probably put the heat reflective tape on the engine side of the plastic reservoir bc I have a bunch laying around, Iím sure it wonít hurt anything.

Also got my reman Taurus fan from Vatozone. It was legitimate free next day shipping which was impressive, but they have a major parts hub near my house so that might be exclusive to Phoenix and other specific cities. I hope the output is the same as the oem fan! Worst case maybe I swap the fan motor from the Volvo fan.




Iím keeping this setup together because 1) I couldnít get it apart 2) just in case this fan project take longer than expected, the derale fan will suffice short term.

The nuts are down in the hole (giggity) and i canít get anything in there that keeps them from spinning. I tried like 1,2,3,and 4 flat head screwdrivers and that was unsuccessful, I can cut it out, but Iím not ready for that level of commitment yet haha

Now I’m worried about my radiator overflow, I just installled what looks to be the exact SS overflow you had/have, I think I got it from Novak... I haven’t had a chance to really test how well it will work, since I’m waiting on TC to drive it again. Would you end up spitting a bunch of coolant out of the bottom of the overflow?


I’ve wrapped a few under hood components with shield tape, most recently the plastic ECM cover, evap canister. Just don’t trust the plastic getting hot/cold and not cracking or melting. I’m with you, can’t do any harm...

Thanks for the idea on overflow. I have the exact same issue. I end up getting air in the system because it expands too much and dumps on the ground. These old small blocks are heat producing machines!

This one is pretty big, itís from a 1997 C1500. I figured thatís what the motor ďcame out ofĒ, thatís what the factory used. Itís more of a science project. It does take up a lot of room. Depending on what it looks like after driving on it for a while, if I can downsize to a YJ one or something less obtrusive I will

This one is pretty big, it’s from a 1997 C1500. I figured that’s what the motor “came out of”, that’s what the factory used. It’s more of a science project. It does take up a lot of room.

Speaking of heat, What temperature range are you guys normally running at?

I test drove my rig this afternoon and it was running 200-230. It is pretty windy out today so the temp would dive to 180-190 into the wind. When I got back in the drive way, I popped the hood and just held it at 2000 rpm to see what would happen and the temp shot up to 250 after about 4 minutes. I shut it off and grabbed my temp gun, but I couldn’t find a temp that high on the block, it was closer to 190-200... not sure if I have a goofy temp sensor, or if it wasn’t getting enough flow through the radiator with it all opened up, I don’t have fenders on right.

I run around 200 now which is great. But it does spike up to 220ish and thatís when the overflow starts overflowing lol.

I personally get concerned with anything over 210, when I see that I start watching it, if it gets to 220, I try pulling over as soon as I can. Thatís the reason im putting the Taurus fan in also. Im trying to overkill everything cooling the engine.

Couple pics, I used some door gasket stuff to seal off the drivers side, the other side I notched to clear the tank and the lower rad hose, and added some edge trim. It has a small gap, but I couldnít get the gasket to adhere to a smaller mounting surface, So I left it off the passenger side. it seems to get good pull through the radiator anyway.

I will say, I feel like this Dorman reman fan isnít as strong as the other OEM Taurus/ Volvo fans Iíd used in the past, but itís also hard to tell I suppose.
