Re: flat towing a dana 20

Tex: Ya, I've got a tandem axle flat bed that I use some. The main reason I'm flat towing right now has more to do with my tow vehicle than anything else. My 91 Chevy 4x4 has been giving me fits all summer. In the Texas heat, 100 plus seemingly every day, my truck wants to run real hot (240). This is especially true towing. The jeep loaded on the trailer just seems to exacerbate that problem. Flat towing seems to be less weight and less strain on my tired, overheating truck. BTW, as far as the truck's overheating goes this summer the tranny was rebuilt, new Modine radiator (exceeding fact. specs), new 190 thermostat, external tranny cooler, repeatedly cleaned rad fins, good fan clutch, accurate reading on the sending unit. I'm running out of ideas. The GOOD news is I'm gonna retire the pickup here in the next few weeks for a new Ford Super Duty Powerstroke. Then I'll be back on the trailer every trip.
