Haha, 60 celcius which is like 154 F. not sure if you're joking or not


That would actually be 140*F.
F=1.8C+32

bunch of shit, none of it sr motor. ga failure.

replaced bad water pump. thermostat housing got stripped where the cap connects, so today under 1fastser's suggestion i jb welded a stud into its place, then went and did it to the other 2. i dont think i will have any more problems.

incase any of you other guys are interested in doing the same thing.... 3x m6 1.0 25mm is all it takes. autozone carries them as water pump stud kit part number 23743 comes with 4 studs, nuts, and lock/split washers. if you decide to replace the thermostat, oem rating is 170f but 180f is very common so specify 170.

keep them ga's maintained and you can push 50mpg on long trips!

/end failure.bs

failed at jb welding in a stud... twice. failed at putting in a helicoil in an area where there just isn't enough space to do the job with the tools I have. ended up putting an m7 straight into a m6 hole without cracking the aluminum or cross threading finally stopped my damn coolant leak on retard ga. still a b13 right? god I cant wait to throw away this motor.... id buy a boat just to use it as an anchor.
