Default 1960 C10Trucks cooling fan

I have a 1960 C10 stepside with a 283 that may have been bored (block was decked). I’m running hot at idle (230ish) but good at road speed. Replaced thermostat and coolant. It has what I believe is the original radiator (Harrison) and original huge fan shroud but no mechanical fan and a single electric fan zip tied through the radiator right up against it. Does it need the shroud with an electric fan and any thoughts on if fan against radiator could be air flow problem causing it to run hot at idle? Also, right in front of radiator is what appears to be an old transmission cooler that isn’t connected to anything so I pulled it out to get more air to radiator. There’s a new trans cooler zip tied in front of it. Did these 1960s come with cooler? Thanks!

Was your truck originally a V8..? V8`s used a larger radiator than the 6 cylinder models that is the first question, next if you have the original shroud used a clutch style five blade fan..also too much (advance ) timing will have a big factor on an engine to run hot. gives us a little more on your ignition.

I don’t know what it originally had but the block casting # matches a 1960-1962 283. Was thinking about replacing with a new radiatior. Any suggestions? They are. To be hard to find. It has a standard ignition but vacuum line on distributor isn’t connected to either outlet on carb

For a new radiator use the Champion here, 3 row
https://www.championradiators.com/Ch...ator-1960-1962 I as well as many others have with no issues, as said use a clutch style five blade fan, shroud and start using your vacuum advance connected to manifold vacuum port. any others block off.

You`ll end up retiming your engine, first suck on the end off the vacuum hose, hold the vacuum with your tongue for about ten seconds, if its still holding vacuum its good, if it leaks down replace the vacuum dashpot, in the event it does turn out good leave disconnected from the vacuum source, but block off the vacuum source, set timing, then reconnect the dashpot..

If I replace with a champion do you recommend the overflow tank or is it necessary?

I had one although it never kicked any coolant out after the system was full...probably not a bad idea....! Here`s some info on correct overflow height..

Default Help lower water temperature

Have you tried running some of AMSOIL’s anti freeze boost? May want to completely switch all lubricants over. AMSOIL has lowered my oil temp and water temp.
