O.K. I sat outside and squeezed the damn lower and upper radiator hoses for about 10-15 minutes and then drove it to check and see if the temp. gauge was going to give a different reading NOPE!! I ran the thing for about 5 minutes before I left with the radiator cap off. I called the chevy place before I left and they said to remove the heater hoses or to feel if they are both hot. All the hoses are hot and they feel as though they are going to burst they are so tight. Is there some special gauge that I should use to adapt the jeep cluster to my chevy engine. Before I fried the last fuel gauge/temp gauge it would read 1/4 of the way up when it was running normal and 3/8-1/2 of the way up when it was too hot, ie. boiling radiator fluid. I replaced the gauges, and bought a new cluster before I realized I could just buy new gauges, and replaced the plug that ties into the engine to check the temp. I could not get an exact replacement for the temp sending unit so I just used an o-ring electrical connector in its place. I can not figure out how the hell to get this thing cool again. I am about to go out and smack the damn thermostat and see if that helps. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
P.S. since this is a jeep BBS shouldn't there be some more appropriate moonguys like frustrated, pissed, and down rite ready to set the jeep on fire? I think these would be nice to choose from instead of frown or mad.
