Heater Core Woes!!!
<< < (2/2)
also, if you are going to be running your engine at high rpm on a semi consistant basis installing a flow restrictor in the inlet is not a bad idea, i used to blow them in my foxbody all the time until i put one in....i also got very good at swapping a heater core in a foxbody.
J dot Miller:
Flow restrictor? As far as I know they restrict the flow to a design flow rate. Do you have specifications/ part number? ???
THERE ALSO IS A PART THAT YOU INSTALL IN RAD O0 TO STOP THE ELC CURRENT AS WELL ::) ACTS LIKE A BOAT ZINK ;D PULLS ALL ELC TO IT :) I MADE FLOW RESTRICTOR FOR SC O0 TOOK THE TEMOSTANT AND REMOVED THE CENTER SPRING AND PLUG PUT A S.S. WASHER WITH 5/8 - = 1/2 OPENING NEXT TO THE TEMOSTANT 8) RUNS COOLER AND NO PROBLEMS ;D OLD RACE CAR TRICK FROM THE 50'S ???
you can buy them from a dealer, if i still worked at one i could get the number, i bought it for my fox, as for a flow rate designed ino it note i said " high rpm" the good old engineers designed them for everyday driving, if you take your car to the track as often as i did and ran it as hard as i did you will need one. its not too hard to make one, just make sure you are putting it on the inlet tube or else you will cause more problems than you will solve.
as :freddie: said the "zink" idea isn't bad either as it would get attacked first.
