    Hey Jim, if the timing is too advanced going down the road, what issues will I experience because of too much advance ?

    I have v-belts on the engine so it is probably a "normal" pump. We are on the road in Wyoming now and had a leak at the upper hose connection. Put some sealer in the rad. and it is stopped for now. Hope to be able to get back to Az. and then change it. If we get back then I will install a new pump, already changed the t-stat to 180' hi flow. Also replaced the fan clutch as the old one stayed engeged almost all the time. The Autozone severe duty fan clutch is working well, at least for now.
    I may have an aluminum radiator made when we get back, have to see the cost difference.
    Looked at the rad. installation close today and it appears it can be lifted out the opening for thr hood.Have thought about buying a rad. here in Casper to have along if the old one fails.
    Thanks, Mark

    Hello Jim, From reading some of your posts I think you have an older Winnie from the late '80s. I have an '87 that I need to replace the radiator on. Has a 454.
    Have you replaced your radiator and if so did you remove it from the bottom or out the opening for the hood?
    Thanks, Leadman
