Default Radiator cap pressure rating???

Hi Bart,

Thanks for posting that information! I have never seen the explanation of the purpose of the radiator cap explained before. That might explain why some Tbirds overheat more easily than other ones during slow moving parades. I have not run Yellow Rose in a parade yet. I just checked my radiator cap to see what it is. I thought it was a 13, but I see it is a 14. Hopefully, with that cap and the metal shroud around the radiator now being in place, I will not have that problem. Sooner or later, I will probably find out. Maybe those who have had the problem, if not using a 15psi cap, should try one...
