Default Cooling issues

Had problems with my 1980 FC over heating. Through trial and error, and the helpful advice of Dave Ross and Mike Hohnstein, I felt it was best to have peace of mind by updating all components of the coolant system. I had the radiator cleaned and pressure tested, added new thermostats, new water pump and temp switch, and upgraded to the Horton Fan Clutch system. Special shout out to Larry Bruszynski from www.fanclutch.com (Superior Diesel), and a WOG member, for supplying the Horton clutch and new fan. Fan came on immediately with manual on demand switch and I’m confident it will work automatically if it gets up to those temps. Previously had the magnetic Facet system which degraded over the years to only work about 5 percent of the time. This is a very helpful group and I am glad to be a member. Hopefully this will help others.

Great news Dave, painful expense but will be priceless for peace of mind. I believe I caught a glimpse of you out for a drive this AM on Avon Rd.
Your adventure is on? Have a great time!

Thanks Dave. Hopefully I can use my experience with this to help others with similar issues. (Bright Side). Hope to see you at the “Pond” in September.
