I'm wondering if I should take any measures to improve
cooling my new 1275 I'm putting in my 62. Should I
consider an improved radiator, oil cooler or electric
fan? I live where summer temps hit 100 regularly. Is
there an easy solution?
I've been having overheating problems, and I tried a lot of things. Running
water with water-wetter is definitely a good thing. Running a blanking sleeve
helps a bit. A cooling fan did nothing (anybody want to buy a hardly-used
cooling fan?). THe best thing I did lately is switch out radiators. An old
one worked better than the new Mo$$.
