    Ok, is your tranny cooler in front of the radiator or behind it? its supposed to be infront i believe, and for the engine you might try an oil cooler as well, that might have some effect a friend of ours with a 55 chevy with a 396, had that same problem, put on a oil cooler and its all good.

    Put a raditor out of a big block truck in there. Also maybe a 165 degree thermostat.

    How old is the radiator? If it's an oldie, then it can look OK but still have lots of clogged cooling tubes. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    How about the fan clutch. after your engine has been a full temp for a while shut it off grab the fan and try to turn it if it turns you have a bad fan clutch. Are you running a fan shroud it will help to.
