Quote from: holanae on May 30, 2017, 09:19:00 PMI read all 16 pages hoping to see if anybody is have the same issue with the aluminum housing & pump setup from Summit, and nothing. My temps creep up to 210-215 in stop or go traffic. I don't know the manufacturer of the Summit Aluminum housing but I would have to guess it is restrictive, and that I need a better pump than what came with if from summit. Now the decision to change both, or try the pump first. Mancini or Mildon?
Quote from: misty440 on August 28, 2017, 01:02:56 PMI see this is an old post but would like some clues to my overheating issue. I run a 60 over 440 and installed a be cool aluminum radiator years ago in an attempt to lower my temps. The car has sat for 20 yrs and I just got her road worthy again a few weeks ago. She was running well around the neighborhood and I took her out for a longer ride yesterday only to run extremely hot when I got back home. Inside temp was too hot I thought things were going to melt. I have the stock water pump which is not leaking and wonder if the pump can go bad without showing leaking symptoms? I am running a 180' thermostat cant remember which brand. Installed it back in the early 90's. I have a fan shroud and my fan is mounted directly to the pump no clutch. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am looking at the Milodon pump recommended here or the Hemi pump. Which is my better choice? Thanks,Chris
Quote from: misty440 on September 19, 2017, 01:51:54 PMCorrect. I did not add any water. I was informed by someone to run straight antifreeze. Would straight antifreeze cause an issue?Thanks again,Chris
Quote from: alfaitalia on September 19, 2017, 04:15:45 PMIt's a waste of anti freeze running at 100 % but wont affect the running temp of the engine by any amount you could measure in normal street use...your problem is elsewhere.
Quote from: alfaitalia on September 19, 2017, 04:41:43 PMI read that too...but unless you race it or have a car that runs right at the limit of is cooling capacity you won't see the difference on the gauge. Its suppose to be about 30 % less heat transfer ability than water....but if your fan is doing its job and cooling system is in good order it won't matter....will probably get up to temp quicker though! I confess that I know this from running neat AF in my old V6 Ford Capri (wish I still had it!) when I was 18 and knew nothing about cars- after being told it would keep my car cooler..lol. Was like that for nearly two years....made no difference. I'm not saying I recommend it though !
Quote from: cjw916 on May 31, 2017, 10:46:40 AMI really feel the bulk of the problem is not the housing, but rather, the pump. I think the higher head pressure of the Milodon pump, circulates coolant through the cylinder heads, better. New Milodon pump cured my troubles. Good luck.
