Having cooling trouble.

Car is a 95 gt, has a 93 block in it
Got a rebuild done.
Mild 347 stroker. Potentially the slowest stroker in a Stang period lol, has a b cam with ported edelbrock heads, 1.7 rr,s , comp springs, new crank ect..Trying to do a little breaking in, drove car home
Was running real hot even when driving on the open road 195 - 207 on my mechanical autometer
Went back to shop
Discovered not all the rad was getting hot and the fluid wasn't flowing fast at all
Ended up putting a fluidyne rad in Fluidyne Mustang 3 Row Aluminum Radiator with Manual Transmission (94-95)

Put a new 180tstat in,
Burped it properly
Proceeded to test and go try to get emission test done so I can be on the road, which is a 100km drive where I had to go

Still with new rad hitting temps upto 210-211

Tried rigging another electric fan pushing infront of the rad just to get me home safely,

Drove it from shop to a buddies locally first to see how the difference would be and I was still creeping upto the 195 mark

Went home at sundown and drove 115 km and she stayed at 185-194 on the way back

Thinking my fans are my issue
Possibly the EEC messing with timing and stoic air/fuel ratios

Just want her to stay cool and protect my investment

Also read this it has me in thought

"i finally fixed my problem,the 16"elec.fan,195 stat and the thing that helped the most was i went with a 6" water pump pulley,the combo of the 5"pulley with the high volume water pump was circulating the water to fast.hope you get your problem fixed,just wanted to let you know what fixed mine.thanks butch"

And also this

"The guys have given you good info, if this is a new motor, it will have more friction on the cylinders for probably the first 500-1000 miles due to the cross-hatch honing pattern, thus producing more heat. I would still try to increase your cooling capacity. As long as the radiator is not boiling over, you should be okay. I would try doing some short drives, to get the motor broken in, especially if it is cool outside. Good Luck."

I have a 95 gt and my son has a 97 gt and both run 195 to 210 degrees... I do not think this is "hot" for these engines.

195 is not hot at all. Does sound like you have a fan issue. I never had a problem at all with the stock Cobra cooling setup on my 95 tho, even after a HCI.

Having cooling trouble.

Ended up getting a Taurus fan with relay,
And ended up quitting on me the first run to the gas station, somehow the fan Blade broke , kicker was it was cooling the car a lot better

Ended up just ordering a new flex a lite fan and shroud combo that should be in the range of 3000 cfm, installed fairly simple and made it work as my car is a 95 and the kit was for a 93

First test was great, was like 23 degrees outside and went for a 45km run about and the car stayed around 195, notice when getting a little happy with throttle she'd get to about 198

Second test , same kinda of cooler nice weather .. still good but hit 200 on some accelerating but still cools back down to that 195 range even when sitting a light.

Went out this last Sunday on a 100km trip and it was hot as sin outside, they said it was 38 degrees
Car peaked at 211 that day and would cool back down to about 208 but stay around that range

I guess I'm just posting this ask,
Is this temp at that ambient temp outside understandable to be getting in that range

Some pics of the girls
Thanks guys

I have an 89 supercharged H/C/I fox with bigger radiator and the same fan and it's usually around 220-225 when its 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

I know with the flex fans you can set it when to turn on, so where did you set yours?

Hey smurf thanks for the input man.

Didn't end up using their Tstat/relay

Just ended up wiring it to the relay the Taurus fan came with witch is triggered by a toggle switch

I turn it on when it hits 135 on the temp gauge
