Hope I am putting him on the road PDQ! I cranked and ran it for a while and never got over 190. Fans came on and all seems to be working fine. We're going to flush the cooling system, add antifreeze then give it a run for 30 or 40 miles before he takes off from here (near Cullman, AL) to his home near Chattanooga. Crossing my fingers that he will be having good luck and praying that he does not break down after dark on some long stretch of desolate highway at night. The engine sounds and runs like new. Of course, it is. A new rebuild. THANKS for all the help I got in other threads. Planning on sending a contribution. This "step-son" experience has been a little expensive and I'm broke now and in the hole.
