Customer Question

My issue is with a 1966 Mustang vapor lock. 302 C.I.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I let it idle for 30 min. with the radiator cap off. The temp. gage just went to the hot side.
JA: How many miles are on the car? What size is the engine?
Customer: The engine has about 2,000. It's a 302 C.I.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: I just changed the intake manifold and added a 4 barrel carb. I have pulled the manifold off to check the gaskets matching the engine. No problems there.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Chevy Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello, So stock radiator ?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
The radiator is 2 months old. It's a 3 row, same size as stock.

Well a 3 row should do it, id go to www.jegs.com & just put a vapor kit on it would be the best ......sounds like you left the 2 barrel heads on it as well larger intake & exhaust valves would be nice.......back in the day we put wooden clo....pins on the steel fuel line in the summer racing in the early 70s
