    I used the gasket as a template. I guess it doesn't really matter how you do it but I drilled the same size hole in the head/block as the gasket.

    I was just thinking on my drive to work this morning, I just did the ranger vacuum control a.c. mod with the heater core bypass. I know it would be interesting to plumb but I wonder if we could use one or two of these and trigger the flow of coolant to go to a second "heater core" or smaller radiator under the frame somewhere for extra cooling. I know that when I was testing the thing to make sure it worked today while I had it on max a.c. my temp was around 195 and when I switched the hvac to just vent and the "cooler" coolant that was sitting in the heater core flowed into the block my temps temporarily went down 10 degrees for a bit.

    Just a random idea. I don't know that you could accomplish this with the specific ranger vacuum line I'm referring to but I'm sure there's one out there that could be used.

    If I was gonna do any external/secondary cooling I would do an oil cooler with a bypass filter inline

    And That in and of itself I think would do wonders for dropping coolant temps, and extending oil service intervals.
