Take the electric fan off........and make sure the flex fan is close enough to the radiator.

quick 52 wrote:if it will cool while moving its not the rad... had the problem with my 52 F!... fan is not pulling enough air at idle put a large box fan in front of the car blowing at the rad. and test if this will cool it at idle.. if it does u know it air flow cross the rad. if not the pump is not flowing enough water raise the rpm to see if that helps... I would bet its the fan was on mine had to step up to a elec. fan get a large oem fan from a Lincoln they pull around 40 amps ... amps are hp just like ci. if u want cfm u need 40 plus amps the cheap ones wont do it amps is power... if FORD, GM, CHSYLER could do it with 10 amps they would but there million of $$$$$ R&D say u need power amps

X2 There is your test to do and probably your answer.

make sure the radiator is shrouded as such the air with the hood on is not being pulled from the eng comp back into the front of the radiator...... moving down the road will tend to mask this condition as fresh cool air is being forced into the front of the radiator.
