Hi Everyone. I would like to know whilst travelling on an open road and travelling uphill, Temperature creeps up slowly and when going downhill it slowly goes down. Is this Normal for a 302 Windsor.
With the two Thermo Fans in front of the AC Condensor it helps. Should I get stronger Thermo Fans and replace them ?
I have been told of Engine Clutch Fan (Viscous) as Oposed to the Engine Fan on the Car. I was to add a Viscous Clutch Fan, would it help the cooling of the Motor.

Regards

No I would say that the radiator is RS.
You don't need a fan on the highway at all.

I agree with Castellan that your radiator is bad or partially blocked which equals bad too.

I had an EB that did that and the viscous fan was not cutting in because the radiator had a lot of blocked cores so no heat was coming through it to lock the fan clutch up.

Problem is that the rising temp issue happened suddenly after I replaced a leaking water pump so it bamboozled me a bit.

I suspect either the new pump was way more powerful and filled the radiator full of gunk/casting sand from the engine or less powerful so it could not squeeze coolant through partially blocked cores.

Agree, pull the radiator and if the fins are all OK it'll cost about $120 or so to get the top tank pulled and the cores cleaned and put back together. Put back together after flushing the block well using anti-corrosion additive, unless you live where it gets below zero you don't really need anti-freeze.
