Road Runner Resurrection Part 1

After an exhaustive search on the ‘Net I found the best overall price for a new thermostat and chrome housing at Summit Racing.

    You guys are correct…I had to reaplce the upper rad hose as it was full of gunk. Peering through the rad top tank didn’t llok too bad inside and the balance of the antifreeze looked normal as I drained the rad for repairs. I’m hoping some flush will make it all OK for now knowing the stock radiator has never really worked for me since moving to Texas due to high summer ambient temps mixed with high humidity.
