I mentioned on a previous post that I was running hot, and didn't know if that was an independent problem, or caused from my poly lock breaking and exhaust valve not opening....I say this because I've never had enough time to run it long enough, and actually drive it, to see what was up....
So I wanted to run this by you guys and see if I should change something.
So, I didn't set up the cooling system plumbing, but from what I can tell its pretty standard given by all the diagrams you guys show.
I have my water coming in to a ball valve, that is set to a pressure relief valve. (which has a bypass for itself) then it goes to the block junction, which goes up to the top 2 ports in the 4 port thermostat housing. The right port side goes to the bassett t-valve and goes to the headers, the starboard side goes to a ball valve, which is closed, then overboard.. The set up had a thermostat before, and it doesn't now. So does that sound right? Except I should open the ball valved a little now right, since I took out the thermostat?
HOWEVER: I just went down there to look at it again, and I discovered that the line out of the first ball valve coming fro the pump, that goes to the "t" that splits it to go to the block, has a kink in it...i'm thinking that was probably the problem...oops.
But please help me verify.
