Re: Important

Last overheating at highway speeds I had was a bad fan clutch.. but you probably have addressed that in the past.

A little backstory for everyone. Was prepping the jeep for uwharrie trip this spring and the radiator tank had split at the seam. I put a Chinese aluminum radiator in it and put the tranny cooler and power steering cooler in front of it with a zj fan clutch. After my 8 seconds of not listening to Doug, I ate the radiator with the fan clutch. It ran at 195 all weekend on the trail and the highway before I killed it.

Got home and ordered a csf radiator after I unsuccessfully tried to convince the Chinese I had shipping damage. It was thick and I figured the csf was thinner so I wouldn't have a clearance problem. I also replaced the zj clutch with a new stock clutch. It wasn't worth the hassle.

Everything else is exactly how it was last spring. New cap, new thermostat. Hoses are 2 years old. I don't know how old the water pump is. Yesterday I changed the exhaust manifold, the gasket and the downpipe donut gasket and put on a thrush welded muffler. I don't have a cat since I crunched it at WF or the downstream o2 sensor. I bypassed the heater control valve with brass fittings, put it in the ditch and on ramps to make sure I had no air in the system and it acts the same. The temp sender in the head was new this year. My IR gun says the tstat housing is 197-210, but sometimes jumps up to 220-225. The gauge doesn't seem exactly accurate, but it moves when the temp moves.

On a cold start, it runs up to the 210 mark and idles there. A/C on or off doesn't matter. The aux fan kicks on and off like its supposed to. When I drive it, around the block it starts to creep higher and when I get on the highway at anything over 45 mph it goes almost to the second line and stays there.

Mac thinks the temp sender is wrong and there's not an actual problem. I can get behind that, since there's no puking or overflow or change in the way it runs. I read some stuff about the o2 sensor making it run lean, so I might put my spare in it.

The 91 had a collapsed lower hose and used to run hot on the highway, but immediately got cool when I pulled over and the hose opened back up. This one doesn't do that. Once it's hot, it stays hot and only drops a little when I stop and let it run.

Yesterday I bought a cap, a tstat, both hoses and I have a new pump in the garage. I'm not sure what else to do. The only thing I can think of beyond all that is a defective radiator.
