Response to 428 Cylinder strength - Help!!!
I have a 428CJ that's bored .060 (439CI) and makes 540 hp in my drag car (67 Mustang). I've use the standard big block radiator with no heating problems and no cyl problems for the last 4 years. Most of your heat is in the top of the motor (Heads and cumbustion chambers). If you hardfill the bock to the bottom of the water pump holes, it shouldn't cause overheating problems. Also, make sure not to get air pockets. I would hardfill it before boring the cylinders.
