    Thank you for the awesome DIY link. Looks like a big job. I've already switched out my original 289 because after extensive issues it was finally determined it was overbored so I dropped in a rebuilt 302 that was .030 bore. That was thousands of dollars. Just tonight I installed a fan shroud and added water wetter to the coolant to see if this will keep my engine between 180-210. I'll test this weekend.

    I hope I don't need to install a 24" radiator but I certainly am glad to know this is doable. How much did this cost you in parts for the radiator, fan and other components?

    Can you show some pictures of your cooling setup?
