[Healeys] Radiator Shovel, continued

I think that is natural for a Healey. The temp gauge in my Healey always pegs out in the summer. It quickly gets back to 180-190 once I start it up.

G'day All,

Reading the various threads of late, I read about a temperature gauge reading almost into the oil gauge...I had this problem with my BJ8 when using a so called waterless coolant...which in fact is endothermic (which means it absorbs heat...not dissipates it) and on heat soak after switch off  the following pics tell the story...

I fixed the problem by draining and flushing all the waterless coolant out and refilling with demineralised water and adding Penrite Classic Coolant additive.

Problem solved...no more overheating!!

Happy Healeying,
