We cleaned the oil cooler when we rebuilt the engine
Looked like just antifreeze when it was spilling out, didnt see bubbles or anything
That check ball can be removed? I didnt know that, thought it had to stay in there...
When we opened tye cap and started it all we could see was the antifreeze slowly rising up the filler neck until it started spilling out
It isnt factory rad, its a champion aluminum one if that matters
Temp sensor is where the factory temp sensor was, hoses arent collapsing, spring is in hose
What would swapping thermostat then swapping back tell me if there was already no change in temps when we swapped it out the first time
Also when its running that hot if we hop out and use the no contact thermos on the rad, its usually 190ish at the inlet and 80-100 at the outlet, thermo says 220 when we point it at the block, changed gauges to make sure we didnt have a bad gauge and still says same temps
Both thermostats have been motorcraft thermostats that we picked up at the dealership, they look exactly the same as the one thats in my truck and mine doesnt have a heat problem
I wouldnt let him buy a cheapo thermostat from the partshouse after the issues i had in my old 6.9 running a cheap...
So the new engine my dad and i put together for his truck is running hot, crazy hot
220 cruising empty flat ground, saw 250 the other day goin up a slight hill and had to pull over to let her cool
Tried replacing the thermostat and water pump, no change still averages 220

I actually did just swap in my engine from the old red truck in my picture to this 1992 (the ol 88 was getting to rusty for my limited knowledge to fix) we may have missed that ground cable, ill have to check, it was cold and we were in a hurry when we did the swap
After fighting with some no power issues ive noticed that my factory temp gauge goes up when I use the heater, power windows, headlights or anythingbelse that draws a good bit of power, what would be causing this?
We called him yesterday about it an he said he'd send one out today, so I figure it'll probly be Monday when it gets here and then hopefully this engine will be happy and dad can run off and enjoy his new engine
Tomorrow im going to move it to a different hole and see if the noise follows, just want to make sure that it is the injector, this emgine has given me too much trouble at this point to not be double checking everything lol
When i move the injector if the knock doesnt follow what else could it...
