    I'll apologize as well. I did not see any of the posts on page 4. I was not signed in at the time. I signed in to make post #39.

    I've been running a 377 since 1987, high volume waterpump, 160 thermostat, three core radiator, steam holes in the cylinder heads, the only time I've had it run over 170 is when the car is run on the highway at 70MPH for extended periods. The car has never overheated. Not familiar with the Weiand water pump, is the impeller designed with no gaps between the vanes? Stamped steel impellers create turbulence/bubbling in the coolant and the transfer is not nearly as efficient.

    I have recently upgraded to Tony Mamo Aluminum Heads, Aluminum Waterpump, and Aluminum Radiator, I'll provide a status update after the car is running again.
