I had mine blocked up as well with the mud/substance. Not sure exactly what it is. Maybe a PO had put stop leak in the radiator or something similar. I flushed out the heater core with a garden hose both ways real good and the problem has not reoccured.

Morning, bucky. "LOOKS" like some old desolved rubber and other normal crap, the stuff that usually collects in heater coils and such. Also some leftovers from block cleanining. Did you do a block flush (everything hooked up) after your overhaul? I sometimes find loose stuff after a getting a block cleaned. Depends on how clean a shops vat is, length of time in and/or temp.

Opel GT Source sells all of the temperature ranges for the GT. Don't forget a new gasket.:)

Bucky,

Got your next project for you.

I just got done rewiring my headlights with Relays. 11.5 volts on the original wire. Now almost 13 volts to the headlights. And that's without the alternator.

They are "way" bright now.

Bucky,

Way to get the GT in there to keep this thread Opel related!

We need to see about another gathering and see if we can expand the participants this time.

Anybody up for it before the snow flies?
