    The plastic P.O.S. radiator that Chevy used in my 89 R.S. Camaro died , it was beautiful,, Old Faithful would have been jealous. New Be Cool 3 core is on the way, should be here Wednesday.

    I can not believe Chevy would do that. Plastic, never in my wildest dreams did I ever invision that. Plastic one core, no cooling, disposable P.O.S.....

    Whew, I feel better, thanks for listening.

    I had the same thing in my 88 formula. Replaced it with a 3-core radiator and it ran hotter than with the stock one-core.

    I did put water in it, about the same amount that runs through an irrigation ditch in about 2 hours but with a hole in the radiator the size of delaware it didn't do any good. It was it's destiny.
