Spark-air-gas

Sounds like you have spark and air so I'd check your fuel pressure. Lack of pressure can make a car feel sluggish. Put a gauge on your fuel rail and see what ti says.

This is one time I'd take it to a pro. When you did the work last year you may have not seated an "O" ring correctly. The pro will put dye in the system and check...

You are good. 3 mph is a whole lot of nothing. Unless you are getting shimmies and vibration at speed you did no damage.

Double sided, super thin tape. You will need to have an exacto handy to trim here and there. Any hardware store will have what you need.

My suggestion is to buy a factory spec radiator (yes with plastic caps) and install it (mostly) trouble free.

Unless your engine is seriously modified, the OEM will do just great. Plus, the price...

I'd like to drink a few beers with the guy and hang out in the garage. I have a feeling that if I were to buy his car I'd soon discover it had the sh*t beat out of it.

Now this is how you write a "for sale" ad

This guy knows how to write a car ad. He is a copy writing genius.

I'm not interested in the car but I did read the whole write up. Just the fact that he is entertaining will make a difference!

As mentioned by Tom, clean in between the condenser and radiator for debris do a true 50/50 mix on collant.

My 89 ran pretty consistently at 210-215 with a 195 stat in 100 degree Texas heat.

Read Bfenty's PSA on summer cooling.

BTW...240 is not THAT crazy of a number but it should go lower. Again, clean your radiator and look for debris BETWEEN the AC condensor and the radiator.

Well done. A stock pump that works is better than a Hi Perf pump that is completely cludged.
