48 Ford rad. hose keeps blowing off

Recommended Posts

I have a 48 Ford that the left rad. hose keeps coming off the cylinder head.  It will idle for 1/2 hour and no leaks, If I give it full throttle for a couple  minutes the hose blows off. Have tighten the hose as much as I can and even remove 160 degree thermostat. Thanks for any help.

If you see large or small bubbles when you perform the test that I described, you have a blown head gasket. When you pull the head, make sure that you check for cracks around the valves and along the edges of the cylinders.
