cooling on a 58!
 
Hi all,
I've got a cooling issue with my 58. Running it too long (especially in town with frequent stop lights) makes my tbird heat up to an uncomfortable point. I need to change the old radiator because of a crack and leak, but I was wondering how much I would benefit from getting a brand new, bigger water pump. Is there anything else I can do to help this cooling issue?

thanks!

stock water pumps work fine the bigger one's that move more volume don't really help for street driving. they are great for racing though. I would check and see if your radiator is clogged or if you have access to a infrared temp gun see what the temp going in and out of the radiator are, this will tell you if it's dissipating heat right. also are you sure the gage is working wright? Is the car boiling over or just reading hot on the gage?
