I believe there are no stupid questions, the only bad thing about a question is not asking it.

I just made one up by tapping the thermostat cover for the dump, and using the watts valve that regulates at a minimum of 50 psi . I don't think 50psi is enough to hurt anything plus I trimmed my water pump fins.I also installed the rear freeze plug block off plate. I have 85 bucks tops in the coolant bypass using 10an fittings and braided hose. Could of done it a lot cheaper if I didn't use an fittings but it wouldn't of been pretty either. Trimmed pump fins, block off plate and bypass. Maybe a little overkill but I think it's worth it

I would think so. I didn't want to trim the water pump since the truck tows most of the time. There are cheaper options than fleece but it is pretty.

Well I'm Installing a built tough radiator and there all copper, plus thicker. I think it'll cool better than the factory one. If the truck gets hot ill be putting the un trimmed pump back in as its easy enough. Im going to be taking coolant pressure readings from the rear plug where I install the watts valve for curiosity.

No, Fleece's design takes place of the freeze plug on the back of the motor and opens and closes depending on coolant temperature. Stainless diesel goes from the port on top of the head back by cylinder 6 and uses a watts valve that goes off of pressure, not coolant temperature. I copied stainless diesels and drilled and tapped my thermostat cover instead of buying there fancy dancy spacer . I have about 85 bucks in it and it looks just as good and works the same! Put the 200 bucks you'll save in your pocket

You are moving backwards going to a copper radiator imo. There is a reason we use aluminum now.

How so copper is a better conductor than aluminum

I mocked mine up tonight. Not sure if there's enough meat on the thermostat housing to make a good seal or not, it was about 3/16 thick. If not I'll work a little magic to it.

After Googling aluminum vs copper Radiators it looks like a toss up. So you might be right
