Re: [GFS] 56 Fury - Over Heating



Ed:

You are correct that the car 'slowly' overheats.  How would one go 
about cleaning out the cooling passage from the block to the heads?  
Do you have to pull the engine.  

I had John Schultz from MN rebuild the engine about six years ago 
and the car has ALWAYS over heated.  I have only put 1,600 miles on 
the car in six years.

plugged SOLID with crap!!! 50 years of glop !!!
