Danielross1005 Woodtic,
Did you ever resolve your cooling issue? I'm running a 383 stroker in a 87 yj having cooling issues here in Arizona. Running a 180 t stat, 3 row alum radiator. Alum shroud with an electric fan. Will get up to 210 with no problems. And it's only 90 out right now. If we run the ac, it will heat up even worse. Been banging my head. Can't seem to find a solution. Help would be great. Thanks.

woodtic Can anyone recomend a good choice of electric pusher fan ? Hot day today- bad driving experience. NEED to get cool...

woodtic Thought I had the issue solved! I moved the fan 1" closer to the radiator , That did make an air flow increase & I could let it idle for 15 min. But it did slowly creep to the 210* mark. down the road I went to cool it down.Getting closer I guess.

Ibuildembig Capacity I don't remember but the were a 2 1inch row aluminum. I bought a 4 row one this time just for extra insurance.

woodtic do you know what the fluid capacity of the radiators were ? Just trying to get some form of comparison
06-28-2012 11:47 AM
Ibuildembig Man I dunno why it's getting hot unless it has air in it somehow. I've run huge motors in yjs and never had a cooling issue.

woodtic 131 miles on new build. timing is 14* before, total is 34* with vac adv. disconected

Ibuildembig How new is the motor? Is your timing right?
06-28-2012 02:36 AM
woodtic picture of fan , radiator & shroud . I replaced 165*F tstat with a 180*F tstat. still can't let idle or it will get hot.

loganInaYj Can you post a picture of your radiator and shroud, fan etc
06-27-2012 12:21 AM
Timberwolf switch to an electric fan
06-26-2012 05:26 PM
Ibuildembig swap out the tstat for a 180-185 and it should fix it

87yjman and in traffic but not on load sounds like an airflow problem also. big winch in front of radiator?
06-26-2012 05:23 PM
87yjman stock radiator? i know its not big enough. are you using it?
06-26-2012 05:20 PM
woodtic Thermostat is 165*F
06-26-2012 05:19 PM
flatline vent the hood. but I might look for actual cause. air flow? did you remove the shroud?
06-26-2012 05:16 PM
Ibuildembig what size tstat do you have?
