go to the stewart water pumps web site and follow all of their recomendations and you shouldnt have a problem.

in addition to the aftermarket water pump, i'd use a racing radiator cap with 28-32 psi., 30% anti freeze and some type of "clinging" additive like water wetter or royal purple is helpful. i run gasoline in my 393 stroker with the 351N heads, notorious for running hot, and it gets to about 220 on a hot night. a fan shroud is an absolute necessity as well. it will help keep the engine cool during cautions.
