That sound a bit heat to me also Hafrod. Mine last huge block ran 190 - 210 depending of conditions. Whereby is the temp sender located? Otis uses a gauged lid - tells him the temperature of the antifreeze- If i recall that showed reduced than the within gauge.

That would be too warm for me. How warm does it operation at highway speeds? If the runs roughly 180 ~ above the highway, girlfriend need more air circulation at sluggish speeds.

Too warm, had actually the same problem with a 454 in my 66 chevelle. If you obtain stuck in heavy traffic it wouldn"t take lot to overheat on you on a real warm day. Sounds favor you could have to do some alters to improve the temp by around 15 degre or so.

Make certain all ducts and shrouds space in place. They are an extremely important on dare with small grille openings.
I have a .60 over 454 in a 57 Nomad. The firsr radiator ns tried preserved it at 220 with a 180 thermostat. Replaced the radiator through a Fluidyne unit and also now my pusher fan never kicks in with a 190 switch.

Its sounds sort of warn. Go you check to view that the Fans room coming on around 195 and running. Is that the stock selected Gage reflecting 220. You could want to try and check out if you have the right to Verify the Gage that reflecting 220. To make sure it yes, really is that hot.

on factory big block cars the temp sender is in the chauffeurs side head right over an exhaust port .this is the hollest component of the engine. I have actually all my large blocks in the intake manifold by the t-stat housing. Shot moving the sender there and then view how warm it is running . 220 sounds also hot, specifically if that is without the a/c on.
