Well I did the block radiator test and it came up negative. I'm sceptical. The liquid should turn from blue to yellow and I got nothing after 10 minutes so I put at the tail pipe and it took 3 minutes just to turn green. I don't think the 110 Octane makes a difference.
Ordered a custom aluminum racing radiator so after that's installed more than likely it will be a new head gasket.

At least gasket is cheap and easy enough

Well a Cometic Gasket is $90 and a Tomei is $110. After that it's just a pain in the ass to pull everything apart. For $300, I can replace a radiator in 10 minutes. 👍

Doubt if it's the head gasket ... more likely the fan

Cometic copper gasket needs special deck & head prep

Radiator showed up. 2 core instead of my old single. 50mm thick instead of my old 30mm. Basically the same - length but I'll have to modify the mounts to get it in. Maybe I'll get a new fan setup as well.

Radiator fits nicely and is working. I ordered a new fan thermostat plug for the radiator. The current one was 95c - 85c which allowed the temperature to raise up a little bit. I ordered a Fiat plug out of England that is 90c - 80c. Should keep the temperature down. I do still have a fan "ON" override switch.
