  1. Well there are only two options left: To remove the manifold and take it to a shop for ceramic coating to reduce temp at idle during traffic or go all the way with electric fans. If fans fail there goes the engine.
  2. Just to clarify my actual alternator is rated 60 amp. Will i need to look for a more powerfull alternator if i plan to install twin electric fans to reduce the heat during traffic jams?
  3. Lets wait for the final input before i make the investment.
  4. Mark, What if i decide instead of removing the cast iron manifold and replacing it with a header to install a twin electric fan and shroud? Will i need to upgrade my 60 amp alternator? If so which will be a direct and recommended replacement?
  5. Still undecided on the path to choose. MSA ceramic header or dual electric fans. Any benefits from dual electric fans?
  6. Yes i will find out about this. My engine block is E88. I also took some pictures where you can have a glimpse of the heat shield, phenolic spacers and heat shield extension for your reference. No bubbles at the fuel filter.
  7. How do you clean those passages? Do you need to remove the engine from the car?
  8. Ok as i said before my car has a champion 3 row radiator with 16lbs rad cap and original 1972 datsun plastic fan cluch with msa shroud. It also has the phenolic spacers between the SU rounded 3 screws and additional heat shield. How come some users here have tackled this heat problem without spending more than 500usd in electric fans, shroud , thermoswitch and alternator?
  9. So at the end what is the remedy? Just spend 400 usd in MSA fans and shroud and a new alternator?
  10. Focus on a way to remove that heat from the carburetors.
  11. Not at all site. I thought one of the valve seals was broken and changed both of them. Problem had nothing to do with the engine. Problem arises when car starts misfiring after long stop and go traffic. Too much heat in the manifold.
  12. Shrouded fans?? I read in other forums about Spal fans? Can you point out which model and setup
  13. Car has a 160 degree thermostat, original plastic blade fan clutch and champion 3 row radiator. Still struggling with percolation during stop and go traffic in Panama. I have been advised to install electric fans with thermoswitch to tackle this. Will this be the final and concrete solution to my problem?
  14. Still dont see any comments regarding my pictures?
