    What ratio of coolant to water are you running? Higher the concentration of coolant in water the worse it'll transfer heat.

    I'm running a red premix I get from my KW dealer. The service manager mentioned this to me, but when he found out I was already running his red premix he said that's the best he has. I'm not sure the % mix of it tho.

    Simple question. Have you blown out the dust in the radiator?

    Getting ready to wash it all out. I know there are a few bugs in there, and dust too. Also ordered the seals for the sides of the radiator to help keep air from going around it. I guess there is one on top too, I'm not sure what it looks like but am going to put all that stuff on and see what happens.
     
    Ruthless and beastr123 Thank this.
