About 240, then she pukes all over the place. I don't have the overflow bottle in place because he took that space up with extra grounds and shut off switches. Gotta find room to put it back in. He found a pulley in a box of parts and now thinks it might be too big and not turning the regular water pump fast enough. I might also get a highflow water pump.
I just wish I knew if it was the power steering pump or gear that failed.
