most of the confusion with my posts would seem the 'improper' use of punctuation, some of that is on purpose, not to confuse you; but (like the 'improper' usage of the ;) its my way of communicating difficult, or changes, or additions of ideas and such. perhaps i should remember this and work on being clear with ideas.

Parts store run! Managed to find a brand new VW original radiator for my B3, still in its box. Loaded up on most of the other bits and pieces I'll need for my swap. Hoping to have it in the car and driveable by this time next week.

where did you find radiator van-guy? like i posted earlier, this car has been cracked up, it was quite some years ago, by now, looks like my condenser is seeping a/c oil, the front end took a hit back then, had a pretty good guy fix it up, rad+condenser arenot the highest quality, whatever they lasted, what, over 10yrs, maybe closer to 13yrs or so, not bad for the price i paid, and i dont think anything else he fixed has broke, or rusted. anyways was thinking i might replace condenser. took a reading from it last fall, i guess, and high side was low, like 50psi or so, yet i was getting cool air, low side was close. later i found condenser, figured replaced was problem, so want to be prepared may need a rad too.
anyways was hoping to be done with thermo earlier, was doing that and mixing in some other stuff, had to make a trash run, before it closed 2-nite. what a difference, now heats up, seems quickly enough, problem seems to be cool, got a 90c thermo, gauge reads about 180f, seems a little low, tomorrow, prob after i make a travels i ll hook up vcds and check actual temp. found a pretty easy way to get to housing. may make it thru the night.

so after driving a good 300mi, temp looks normal. about 88c, not quite the exact spec of thermo, then again after what went down, and considering it does take a good extra time to get warm/& warm up, taking too long. reaches full heat now, so all in all, helps a lot. iq was about 2.2 2.4. kind of hazy on what mod. cyl displacement really refers to. i guess i could look it up, but looking for an easy reply. . or have to look it up again, mod. pist. disp. something like that.
so i went 250miles, my tank started at just below 1/2, had to put some fuel in then, was good in the red. really good. about 3/8 of a tank or more for that mileage. for an ok tune, *-and stock at that.
was running purge thru it, so i didnt want to fill up at any other time and dilute.
