I thought I was the sh!t in a 72 Nomad wagon with 60’s out back and air shocks stacked at 125psi. Broke one cruising the strip in Daytona lol. Raised the rear about 4”. Was to poor for new shocks. Got tires and rims from Junkyard up in Bunnel Florida. Talk about hick town. Had one traffic light back then. Now it’s a city that spans across bridge into Flagler Beach. Good times lol

Tints done. Sh!t job. Paint is taking a beating in this southern sun. Top side is oxidizing. Hoping to buff and wax out. I'll let y'all know how that goes. Need to do tune up or just wait it out and build one of the engines in shop for it.or in storage I should say. That's another thread lol

Ordered Frostbite oe radiator and elec fan and oe core support. Was gonna be an easy swap. Not... copper rad in it won't cool truck down here.
They didn't move engine back so nothing oe will fit. So now everything is custom. Tomorrow's a new day

How hot is the engine temp getting? What's the timing set at? Does it have a thermostat in it? I'd try these Moroso 63440 Water Outlet Restrictor. They're easy to make. :twocents:
