RE: FORD 460 Overheating Mystery

another thing I did with my P-30 chassis was I blocked up any place that air could escape once it got past the front grill. This was so any air that came through the grill had to push through the radiator. I got a 15-20 degree drop in temperature but still ran hot till I got the radiator re cored. What I did was used some 1/4" hardware cloth and stapled it in. Then I used spray foam on the screen. Its been like that for at least a dozen plus years.

RE: FORD 460 Overheating Mystery

How about the sending unit itself? Kind of odd that the temp can jump that quick.

RE: FORD 460 Overheating Mystery

Is there a rubber cover/dam above your radiator? this keeps the air coming through the grill from going over the radiator. Quite a few years ago I completely sealed up the front around the radiator. Air has nowhere to go except through the radiator. Made a big difference on the cooling of the engine.

RE: Any advice for replacing exhaust manifold gasket in a 454?

I changed mine over to headers about 10 years ago. Used my acetylene torches and got each bolt red hot then let it cool for a minute. Each bolt came right out. Are you sure its a blown gasket and not a cracked manifold?

RE: Pumping out of a water jug

I carry a 5 gallon bucket with an Gamma bucket lid on it and use this pump to get water into my tank. I have no other way to get water into the tank https://www.surpluscenter.com/Water-Pumps/Submersible-Pumps/Specialty-Submersible-Pumps/DC-4T-Marine-Camper-Utility-Pump-2-924.axd I made a short piece of hose to go from the pump to the garden hose fitting. all I do is drop the pump into the bucket of water and pump away. It's worked this way for 15 years. I made a 12 volt hookup to plug the pump into.

RE: Multimeter Calibration?

.2 volts and .01 volts. unless your adjusting a bias circuit, you should be happy with that. Back in the day the RCA Senior Volt ohmist was the standard. now my Fluke and my old B&K are the ones to go to. But testing the home A/C voltage they are off from each other by 2 volts. Good enought!

RE: 95 Bounder 34J--rear leafs--shop recommendation

I was told by one shop, put Firestone bags in the rear. Another said a single leaf--which would be a more harsh ride, but hold the weight better I need to research what others with the F53 frame have done to correct the steering wonder. I was told the same thing. I had a new set of springs put on and inquired about extra leafs. They said the same thing. I was not happy with the added rear height so a few years later i added "Air Lift air bags to the rear. They were close enough to the exhaust pipes so i added header wrap to the pipes. I was able to get the rear end up a couple of inches and boy it made a big difference in the ride. A lot smoother. Do the air bags. I run around 60psi. Max is 100psi.

RE: 225/70R19.5

I put Hankooks on mine, all four corners. A MUCH improved ride over the Kelly Springfields. The Kellys were 19.5 X 8 The Handkooks are 225/70r 19.5's
