Burping radiator/ airlock?
I have an 84 carbureted 5.0, just replaced timing cover water pump and radiator. I stuck a hose in the t stat housing when I was done and turned the water pump by hand to flush the water jackets out. So I hooked everything back up and filled radiator and started it with the cap off so I could burp it. The coolant level only dropped slightly. And the coolant seems to just be sitting there stagnant and not flowing. I was only apple to get 2 and a half gallons in, I thought it was supposed to be like 4? I'm wondering if I have an air pocket or something blocking coolant from flowing? Aren't you supposed to see the coolant kind of rushing flowing through the radiator? Any help much appreciated
