    Need cooling help please

    I hear you Brian. That makes sense. I've gotta see what effort it takes to get to the water pump, and, if I can get to it, make sure that it is weeping and not something else around/near it. My only observations are from a cursory look from underneath.

    As I mentally process my upcoming task, I have a Q or two...am I pulling vacuum from the expansion tank or the radiator? With the car level or raised at the end of the vacuum draw?

    I understand Howard. Thank you. The consensus seems to be air in the system, followed by stuck thermostat, followed by pump in that order of likelihood. Once the tool gets here I will start the process of narrowing it down. It seems the easiest to do it purge the air first and see if it...

    Need cooling help please

    I appreciate the instructions on how to do this David. Am I to assume that the 5 gallons is for a complete fill of the system if it were empty? If I am just trying to get rid of an air bubble, I can just use a gallon container of premix I suppose. Also, how do I know when the all of the air...

    Need cooling help please

    I was in my garage and found a GT40! It is one I have owned for some 17 years, but rarely drive. I made my mind up to change that this coming year and decided to move it to another outbuilding where I will see it more often and give it the attention it deserves. Basically a "barn find" in...

    Superformance Pedal Box Adjustment

    Mine was one of the first SPFs (a MKII). Not sure if things have changed or if the MKIs are different. This is how I did it: https://www.gt40s.com/threads/changing-pedal-location.29204/
