Hey guys, I have a question about my '58 Apache. I have a small block 350,
and can never keep the engine cool in the summer. When the ambient
temperature reaches mid 90s the engine heats up to 220+. Stopped in traffic
I have to turn the air conditioner off and sometimes run the heater just to
keep it from boiling over. At night it runs cool. I have installed an
aluminum radiator and a big electric fan, and don't know what else to do.
One mechanic told me that the shape of the hood keeps the hot air inside the
engine compartment, but I don't buy that. Anyone else had such a problem?
