Recommended Posts

Having a slight overheating problem with a standard Pinto engine and just wondering whats the coolest temp thermostat you run in your engines?

If it's an engine you've been running for a long time, that never had issues before, I'd replace the thermostat and rad cap, like for like. Then monitor from there.

I use a austin mini thermostat which opens at 74 degrees. You need to trim 2mm of the diameter but that is easy with an angle grinder.my pinto was running hot so I changed a few hoses as well. There was a few small leaks I was not aware of
