Yeah, I wasn't saying you don't need the pusher (with A/C I think you do) just making sure that there is not another problem somewhere that is causing the car to run hot.
Definitely one of those times when there could be several different root causes and I hate just throwing things at it and hoping for the best. The radiator had issues so I'm okay with changing that. The thermostat looked like it was 50 years old so that's checked off. Once I get it on the road again I'll reassess. For all I know it could be a faulty temp gauge. LOL

This is a great study in overheating diagnoses/possibilities/fixes. Will be interesting to discover just what the root cause may be, and what solution solved it. Carry on Dan, we are intrigued. :cool:

When do we get to see it with the Style 5's?
I put tires on them and they're ready to go on but I've decided to wait until I'm done with the suspension, and they may get pushed out since I need to do some construction projects on my list this summer. Unfortunately they all require lumber. :rolleyes:
