    1950-1952 Roadmaster radiator

    This is a refurbished, rodded and pressure tested radiator. Will fit any 1950. Super and Roadmaster for 1951-1952 and probably 1953. Difference in Super is the third row of tubes, I believe. $500.00 +s&h. Located in Wichita Falls, TX Thanks Ben

    Dynaflow reliability

    The harsh going into gear is likely caused from too fast idle. Ben

    Dynaflow reliability

    Probably the most misunderstood ,by the know it all folks , transmission there is. I have none now. Have had in the past. In late '56-'57 my brother had a '56 . It would outrun almost anything thrown at it. Including the police. Did he break the transmission? You betcha. Several times. But then he had a lead foot and a couple BRASS ones. He learned to take it out , tear it down and back in in a day. Long one. He was 19 at the time. Ben

    Hi-Flow vs Normal Thermostat?

    When you say you cleaned out the cooling system, just what was done? IF the radiator was not removed and rodded out, you are spitting into the wind. Nothing you do is going to help if it is not CLEAN. Ben

    Craig's picture shows it upright. I know what you are talking about. His looks like someone found another way. Or am I seeing things? Ben

    Bypass Hose

    I use heater hose. On the bypass. Bt the way, is the bypass OPEN to the pump suction? When I did my engine, I had the pump rebuilt . Installed it. came fall and needed the heater, no heat. After much fooling around, I discovered the passage to the suction was plugged. Cleaned it out and the heater worked. Of course, the engineering reason for the bypass is to have a small amount of water circulating through the engine while the thermostat is closed. Ben
