Re: 1964 230 sl Running Temperature
Hey Mark,<br> <br> It is quite normal for these to run up to about 100C in heavy traffic in hot weather (depends on what you call hot weather though). Have you replaced the water pump? Perhaps it isn' t the radiator, but the fact that water isn't being circulated as efficiently as it should. Also, if you replace the water pump, check that the aluminium casing behind the pump is not too corroded, as this can make a good water pump inefficient.
