    Re: 85 glh

    Drove home at around 93F ambient and drove the entire way with a/c on all the way. MS logs show no issue, max temp was 191F in that 18 minutes of drive.
    More tests later as ambient temp will be higher.

    Just to prove it works or not. I got curious after reading about it and wanted to test it out ever since. Then I forgot about it, then my car was down, so now it's the time to test.

    Same here. Empirical data in the TM world is none too common.

    It sort of funny that several FB members "laws of physics" are based on the Bugs Bunny and Roadrunner Show...

    I have no doubt. I'm really full of myself, but even I know when to stop talking. Most times...

    Oh, I got lots of data.

    I live in Phoenix when the summer day time temperature can get to 110-120F in the shade. It gets so hot that planes can't safely take off. An Omni with a front mount intercooler and working a/c system really test the coolant system here. Most people really have no idea what 120F is and they use their non-a/c car in 90F weather as reference point when I told them my car needs something better than a stock TII radiator/fan.

    I tried four radiator fans (stock, Hayden 14, Zirgo ZFU14S, and finally end up with a Volvo fan. http://www.turbo-mopar.com/forums/sh...t=radiator+tii
    I tried three different radiators (used TII, re-core TII, and Griffin Radiator) http://www.turbo-mopar.com/forums/sh...t=radiator+tii
    I tried with a/c or without a/c.
    etc.

    After spending all the time, money, and effort, I finally formed together a coolant system that works with my car at my location.

    So, I feel I am the best candidate to test out the 3 bladed waterpump theory. If it's going to fail, it's definitely will fail with my car and my location.

    Re: 85 glh

    LOL, # ME TOO.

    My wife has a facebook account to follow family events etc. so I don't go there.

    I'd probably embarrass her if someone ever bashed President Trump I guess.

    Even if I was allowed I probably wouldn't know how to operate it.

    Hopefully Harry will continue to share with his friends here.

    Thanks

    Re: 85 glh

    Motor City is the home of many travelling vehicles or motor cars.

    Deeper thinking reveals that motoring means travelling IE horseless carriage.

    Motor car, motor boat, motor cycle, all are powered travelling vehicles.

    Obviously, most are powered by our friend the Internal Combustion Engine.

    Reminds me of the HAPPY MOTORING gas station signs from our recent past.

    Does anyone actually think it meant HAPPY ENGINEing??

    Of course not, Happy TRAVELLING is the intent!!

    Recently however many motor vehicles are now powered by electric motors.

    This alone illustrates why There is no logical reason to call an Engine a motor



    Thanks

    Thanks Randy, I've been wanting to say the same thing myself. Electric powered vehicles have motors, vehicles that burn fuel have an engines.

    Re: 85 glh

    I appreciate your comment!!

    It amazes me how car some guys stick up for calling their Engine a motor.

    Strangely, I've noticed, the more educated they are, the harder they insist.

    Electrical guys never call motors Engines, at least none I've spoken to.

    They fail or refuse to grasp the motoring/travelling aspect of the discussion.

    Take pride in knowing you are using the correct term friend!!

    Thanks
    Randy

    Randy, I believe you entirely missed your calling as an old school English teacher. We need grammar these days, as it's a lost art.

    Not at all. There is a woman at my school who teaches history, but is certified to teach English. When she does, it's old school and the kids get a ton out of it.
