Best of luck with the issue op. As others have said an IR gun would go a long way towards figuring out what the heck is going on. When I was fine tuning my new GM crate motor and playing with different fan switches the gun was invaluable.

The part I really donít understand is that you live in WA state and only drive your beautiful car a few months a year due to the weather. I was born here 52 years ago and have lived here the entire time. Literally countless collector cars/ motorcycles I have been lucky enough to own and enjoy since the 80ís. All of them I have ridden or driven year round and loved every minute of it.

Sorry for the mini-rant. I just do not understand how the extremely mild PNW weather could ever keep someone from enjoying their pride/joy year round.

takes one near accident and most of us park the baby if its even looks like drizzle rain, some people are great drivers, some think they are great drivers, the rest of us just watch the weather forecasts. props if you drive year round, I personally coulnt bear to have something happen and know it was preventable if I had only parked for the day.

issue was more generic about the cooling system on a replacement engine, I assumed he wanted a larger reader base to help. as most of us are not able to find a good c2 to play with.
