just a couple of questions

Post  ironbark on March 18th 2013, 7:13 am

I have just received my new engine, and it is a 605 with profiler 205 heads.
it is drag only, hat injected methanol, TRE sheet intake.
first question is about the water passages, the front 2 are open 1 on either head but there are no other outlets to let water circulate, do I need them.
second question follows the first, the engine is metho based and if you do not run water at all how do you know what temp to run at, what is the procedure.
any input would be appreciated.

The two water outlets you mention, are these holes in the intake face of the cylinder head or the front of the head facing toward the front of the vehicle? I assume the intake manifold doe not have a coolant outlet, and do you plan on using a water pump and how will the pump be mounted, in a factory location or remote?

intake face and was going to run a inline pump just to circulate through the heads, but can they be sealed and not run water at all and if so how do you know what operating temp would be.

Given the set-up you have described I would be more interested in the oil temperature.

Use the (I assume) exposed coolant holes in the cylinder head/intake face as outlets and fill the engine at the water pump/block coolant openings. I would think the use of a coolant would be an asset.
