  1. Bought it by the gallon.
  2. Never tried white vinegar, but when I was looking into it I wasn't finding anything that showed white vinegar to be any where near as effective as apple cider vinegar. I have never diluted it - always used at 'full strength'. Whatever you use it on will begin to surface rust almost immediately (minutes) after the treatment, so you should plan on some sort of inhibitor IMMEDIATELY after rinsing. When I did my tank I poured about a cup-full of WD40 into the tank, swirled around for a few minutes, and drained. That kept it clean until it was put into service.
  3. That amount of rust wouldn't concern me. If you still want it gone in a more environmentally friendly way, soak it in apple cider vinegar. Here is a before/after of a VW trans mount that soaked for a few days and just rinsed off with water... I've used it on a fuel tank as well with great results. The caveat is that the item must be completely submerged in the vinegar because steal will rust when in contact with the vinegar VAPORS. So, you must fill the tank entirely. Or, in the case of the mount pictured above, it was completely submerged in a container.
  4. The stock Subaru thermostat is 172 degrees and not fully open until somewhere around 195 (and they are also cold side control). It seems stock EJ22 Suby’s typically run at right around 190-205 degrees. I don’t generally start worrying about an engine until it breaks 250. I’d say “maybe”. I believe the radiator is big enough for stock horsepower, so it really becomes about getting enough airflow across it. Not any hotter. Stop and go traffic runs the fans, but maintains the temperature, much like a ‘normal’ car. Good luck with your Bay and keep us posted on your progress.
  5. Not really anything to report. No cooling issues at all. I would guess if it was a fully loaded camper it may need more cooling capacity than what I've done.
  6. A big THANK YOU to the Moderators

    Things can always be better. But the forum can’t be all things to all people. This forum was always intended to be a technical library, not a social event. Anything social was a byproduct. Yes, it has changed over the years. One of the biggest changes is that the moderators have stepped back considerably for the last few years and allowed the members to largely steer the ship. I can’t say it’s any better or worse for that, but it is more ‘yours’ now.

    All the Mods have busy lives. One of us will get to it when we get a chance to look it over. Until then we would appreciate it if you extended us some grace while we sort through it. Nothing has been deleted, only hidden.
  11. If I were to stick to my original radiator configuration I would want more fan(s) and or ducting air directly to it. A quick easy improvement would be to mount three more fans on the top side of the radiator just like the bottom side. Configure them as pushers. That should help get more air through the radiator and also give you some redundancy if one or two should fail. Possibly, but I'm not crazy about the extra maintenance. Just a personal preference. That's twice as much as they're worth

  14. We’ve had a pretty good heatwave here in the Pacific North Wet. Hotter than usual for longer than usual. I haven’t been driving the Bus much. Either the air-conditioned car or the dual-sport has been the preferred commuter for the last few weeks. But my wife and I decided to do a small road trip up Mt. Hood with ambient in the 93 deg. range. That’s about as hot as it typically gets here on the west side of the Cascades. I figured this would be a good time to lean on the cooling system to see if it could handle the heat and the climb. So that’s what we did. We maintained 4000-4100rpm for the majority of the climb - we’ll just call that “highway speed” . Water temps hovered around 195-197deg. On the steepest climbs, passing people at 4500+rpm, brought the temps temporarily up to 200-203. This is the hottest I’ve seen the temps under any driving conditions with the new cooling configuration, and certainly acceptable.
