You can try:
1. Dual Electric Fans in front or rear of radiator (rear = 20% more efficient). Spahl fans are US made and supposed to be great.
2. http://www.redlineoil.com/Products.aspx?pcid=10Water Wetter-- 100% distilled water & 1 bottle of Water Wetter = 20 degrees cooler!
Check on water pump seal (bearing?) being lubricated.
Remember your specific climate..... water freezes at 32 degrees. You can read about 100 reviews of Water Wetter on amazon.com. It works.
Best tip is: drain cooling system........Radiator Cleaner-Flush-drain..........rinse-drain.......rinse-drain.....now its' Squeaky Clean for great heat transfer.....
Add Distilled water and 1 bottle of Water Wetter.
*Flushing it with a cleaner will help you get the 20 degrees cooler.
3. Take the hood off = 5-10 degrees cooler ('open the oven door')
4. You can put an "UP DATE" on this post to let us know how you got it to run cooler.
