Yes, enters rad first and then to a B&M cooler in front of a/c condenser.Do you have an aftermarket trans cooler?
All factory air dams are in place and in good condition.Is the air dam in place?
I had the front of the car jacked up as high as I could get it, filled with 50/50 mix, ran engine with rad cap off until thermostat opened, adjusted level and closed cap. This is the way I have always filled cooling systems.I don't recall,how did you "burp" the system? I never had a problem with any of my Foxes,except my current one. I HAD to use a no-spill funnel to get the air out. BTW,I'm running a 331 with turbo. Champion radiator,HD water pump,HD fan clutch.
The car is 100% stock appearing, I have collector plates on it.The car does not have a fancy road racing nose on it right?
Cutting off some air flow to the radiator?
Timing is set at 10 deg and was confirmed with the Holley as per their instructions. This should be a good base for timing, I plan on getting it tuned further when I can cure this overheating issue.Two things come to mind, coolant flow above idle and timing,
What is your timing set at?
Is the lower hose collapsing when you rev it up?
Was the radiator/fan-shroud installed at the same time, like a set, or replaced the radiator then added the fan-shroud after?
Ok, timing is not the issue, I suspect a flow issue, water pump has an issue pushing coolant through the engine or pulling it from the radiator, check the lower hose for collapsing when rev'd up, there is a possibility the water pump impeller is defective or slipping on the shaft, take the back of the water pump off and inspect.Rad and fan/shroud combo were installed at the same time.
New Contour fans are so cheap, there is no reason to buy a used one.
Mostly my point about shopping LMR for common replacement parts, nothing against them, they have great customer service (my experience) but replacement parts are found cheaper from parts stores.The OEM fans pull a few more CFM than the aftermarket ones. The motors are a bit more powerful. However with OEM ones being 20 years old by now, not sure I’d use an old crusty fan on a nice new build.
My Dorman unit however is plenty adequate and even on a warm day I really only need to run it at 70% of full speed to keep my car cool without the ac on.
Oh and I would bet the LMR unit is just your typical parts store fan or even a dorman unit anyway.
Having several years of parts experience, and once being ASE parts specialist certified, I assure you it's an aftermarket knock off. But at the end of the day, Dorman is a pretty good company. Much better than A1 Cardone anyway.Oh and I would bet the LMR unit is just your typical parts store fan or even a dorman unit anyway.
