    Default #12 cooling system

    Anybody know what the pressure is supposed to be in the cooling system of a D318? It seems like this one is awful high?

    Actually 6 psi would seem pretty high. Finally got everything sealed up and up to operating temp after thermostat replacement. Now we are starting to find leaks at hose connections and such.
