1, 980 corvette running hot

by Roger Foust
(Orlando, Fl, USA)

Hey guys, need some help. I have a 1980 L-82, recent rebuild, and the thing is screaming hot. Idling and highway the thing runs around 240 degrees. I have installed a new aluminum radiator, and electric cooling fan but nothing helps.

Has anyone one had any experience with the high flow water pumps? Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Roger
