    Our Wildcat had it's first extended road test the other day. When we got back to my house the radiator fluid was leaking out of the over flow chamber and it was steaming like crazy. The hose from the radiator to the engine was hard like its supposed to be.

    So we figured the thermostat didn't work, tested it in boiling water. Checked the water pump, it looks good but haven't put the new one in yet. We flushed water through all the parts we could and the all seem fine.

    Someone told me that there is probably a block in the middle of the radiator.

    Was just wondering what you guys think the problem is, or is there a way to test the middle of the radiator.
