Re: head gasket
"if you get the water flowing thru the engine too fast it will run hotter..... cause the water dont have time to pull the heat out"
Well, I guess if you carried that logic a little further, if you restricted the flow even more it would run cooler yet. Makes no sense to me.
The rate of heat transferance is directly proportional to the rate of flow. In other words, the greater the flow of coolant, the cooler the engine.
