I picked up a 78 Omega with a 454 and a Panther jet. I have had it out twice now and it runs great, but it seems to run a little hot (about 180) and the temp always climbs at idle. This weekend it started running around 210, so I shut it down and put it away.
I traced the water line for a ball valve or a gate valve, but it goes direct from the pump to the block. I figured maybe a wear ring issue, but after searching the forums, it seems that Panthers don't use that technology to feed the motor??? Any suggestions? Thank you!
