Flushing the radiator is relatively easy you need to use a mixture of air and water (as Craig suggested) - instead of using these new types of products (as they can be quit harsh on the old girls) use a gallon of vinegar and top the rest with water - let it sit overnight and drain. Make sure when you drain the radiator it is not on your driveway as the rust and so forth can be a bugger to get rid of and can stain. Also if you are worried about the acidity of the vinegar you can do a flush with some baking soda to neutralise it.

Reverse Flushing Radiator

Disconnect the hoses at the engine
Put radiator cap on tight
Clamp the flushing gun in the lower hose with a hose clamp
Turn on water and let it fill the radiator
Apply air pressure (6 lbs. max.) gradually to avoid radiator damage
Shut of the air, again fill the radiator with water and apply air pressure – repeat until flushing stream runs clear
Clean and Inspect radiator cap

To Clean the radiator grill (fins) it is best to direct an air blast directed at the backside (engine side) of the core and passing through to the front of the car (there are solvents that you can use for this but try first without them)

Engine Block flushing can be done as well but try the radiator first.

Are you using coolant/antifreeze?

Does you cap have a pressure rating on it?

Contrary to popular believe, an engine produces more energy (and heat at the same time) at high speed (freeway) than at idle or slow speed. So more adequate / perfect cooling is needed. Pressure loss often happens in that condition.

Try this and if it doesnt work we can take it from there

Suggestion have you pressure tested the coolant system with a pressure tester also while doing this you can do the radiator cap (sometimes it can be a cap, cap seal etc. etc. which is faulty), this will pick up any leaks in the system, also the external grill (fins) of the radiator are clean and not blocked.

 Also I know this sounds really dumb but is she completely topped (also check for air blockages) up as Thermo Syphon systems have to be full to operate correctly that’s why when you are using these types of systems they heat up relatively quickly when you loose water as the system starts to become inoperable (In some situations the flow of liquid may be reduced further, or stopped, perhaps because the loop is not entirely full of liquid. In this case, the system no longer convects)

Simply Put - Convective movement of the liquid starts when liquid in the loop is heated, causing it to expand and become less dense, and thus more buoyant than the cooler water in the bottom of the loop. Convection moves heated liquid upwards in the system as it is simultaneously replaced by cooler liquid returning by gravity. Ideally, the liquid flows easily because a good thermosiphon should have very little hydraulic resistance.

I agree with Tony - Have done a few where we flushed the engines to remove all the gunk with a Diesel mix - may sure they turned over by hand and then fired them up sometime it is good when they havent been fired up for a long time as usually all the stuff has pooled in the sump.

Great looking rig love the front pointy grill,such style and grace they had in those days - is it X-military do not know much about the history of plymouths in the Military.

All the best

Hi All

Anybody live close to Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, United States as there is a set of wheels for the 29Ply on ebay that I thought of purchasing but I need to find some where to store until I can arrange freight to Australia - if anyone else is bidding on them let me know and i will not bid against you.

Cheers
