Response to Issues with newly built 427

That engine shouldn't be 220° within ten minutes...... an FE should never be run at 220 in my opinion. Check that the head gaskets are turned the right way.....tab to the front, water blocked at the front. With the water pump off, you can stick your finger in the hole in the block and feel if the water is blocked off at the deck (it should be). Might save you some pain, and it is easy for seasoned veterans to slip up and put one on backwards......
