    Blowing water out of radiator reservoir

    Were the cylinder heads resurfaced and checked to be sure that there was no cracks....?? The aluminum cylinder heads are also Very prone to warping especially if has been run hot and should not be reinstalled unless it has been cut to insure a flat surface for the head gasket to seal properly....Also no cracks in the deck of the block or in maybe one of the cylinders....It is also very possible possible to have an internal crack in one of those areas....and not have any water in the engine oil...... One other thing...The head bolts are torque to yield and should not be reused.....Once they have been stretched (torqued) they will not have their clamping power anymore....Will allow the head to crawl around or not seal even if it has been cut......

    A Shooting Brake Dodge Demon ? Why Not?

    I've never really been a MOPAR guy...But I do like it.... Wonder if the transmission will fall out of it at around 70K miles.....

    Hello!

    Yes..If the interior lighting options are able to be changed...It will tell you exactly how to do it in the owners manual that came with the vehicle.....

    64 389 difference

    The earlier 389s were reverse flow cooling...(Different cylinder heads and intake manifolds among other things) Pretty sure but not 100%....That they changed to a conventional coolant flow sometime in or around late 1964 or early 1965....???

    Tires

    Without listening to the engine first hand..Would be almost impossible to even try to guess what it might be....

    concern about oil capacity

    What year GTO..?? Would start with five quarts..Then check the oil level..Then add if necessary until the dipstick indicates full...Make sure the oil filter is full before checking....Don't overfill...

    Brakes, rotors and caliper

    Might not be a bad idea to replace the rubber lines that run to the calipers from the hard lines.... Cats are cool..Have a couple myself....

    Heat hot at high rpm, cold at low

    This may sound like a stupid question... Am not trying to be condescending... Are you 100% sure that the system is full including the heater core..?? Something that might be worth looking at... Check the hot water valve that regulates the water flow into the heater core (controlled by the temp switch on the HVAC panel on the dash) for proper operation or for some sort of blockage or maybe sticking or something.....Are the heater hoses routed correctly (inlet usually the top hose ) going into the heater core from the engine and or radiator..and not squeezed off or kinked somewhere...Or possibly installed backwards...

    New Shoes for Lucy

    Personally I like the pontiac Rally wheels the best... I've always liked the Cragar wheels too.....That being said..Also always thought that the ET mags...Don't remember what they were called...(diamond spoke maybe..??or possibly Torque Thrust..??) The 5 spoke ones with the semi polished rim part and the darker rough cast looking spokes in the center...Looked sort of the same style as the cragars but different... One of my friends back in the late 70s had a turquoise colored 68 Tempest with them on it...With Uniroyal Tiger Paw White letter tires....Looked like it meant business even though it had a six cylinder engine....He Also had a Kraco 8 track tape player with Mind Blower speakers..(Anyone remember those)??....Still have my Ted Nugent Double Live Gonzo..8 track tape we played all the time.... Bottom line is...Whatever wheels you like go for it...

    Tires

    They do look pretty well used up....... Next time you change the oil... Use a tubing cutter or some snips and cut open the old oil filter.... Then you will be able to get a better idea of what's in the oil....Don't use a hacksaw or anything like that to cut it open with.... It will leave metal chips or shavings in the filter...And you won't know what was already there and what was put there during the cutting process.......

    So What Do I Get Next?

    A Tuned Port...305 (or 350) 5 speed can be a really HOT and economically viable set up with the right selection of parts..... Depending on condition and price.....I would seriously think about snagging it up......

    Grand Am Overheating

    Have you replaced the radiator cap..??? If the cap is no good it will not allow the cooling system to pressurize and will boil over instead....( Very common overlooked problem)...Most the time you can't tell if the cap is bad by the way it looks.... As far as the low coolant light staying on when the system is full...It is more than likely the coolant level sensor ( located somewhere in the tank in the top of the radiator)..they're notorious for not reading the level correctly when they get some age on them...will have no adverse effect on the cooling system other than the light staying on... As far as the cooling fans the temperature sensors (thremal coupling) for the fans are designed to read liquid temperature not vapor or air temp...when the coolant level is real low and there is not enough water in the water jackets for the sensor to read.... The fans will not come on no matter how hot it gets.....(if everything is working properly the fans should come around 220 degrees with the secondary fan coming on around around 224 degrees) Also the fan should come on when the AC is turned on....No matter what the temp is.....
