Does the rate of loss continue if you run it longer than 20 minutes? For example, if you ran it for 40 minutes would you lose a gallon?
If it runs longer, does the temperature increase?
I know it doesn't pressurize as I release the pressure cap.
Rate of loss is a stumper. It seems to be okay and after
running a couple of times (10-20 minutes), it's down almost a gallon.
The temperature never passed 140. I replaced the thermostat today
and it holds now at 185.
I appreciate the info on checking pressure and using dye but I can't figure out the inlets from the outlets. I'd gladly pay for a "schematic" of the cooling system.
I'm going to try and enclose a picture of the major coolant components on this vessel and maybe I can get some ideas what travels where.
Thank-you all for your time-
