Even if the thermostat is not totally shut when closed, there is too little air going on througj the bottom rad hose during its change to make air pockets difficult to bleed out. Nobody uses a blower to blow air into the engine through a thermostat thats open a crack.

The explanations may not precisely fit the facts but they are close enough to result in the observed data. Newtons laws of motion are bull**** but nasa still uses them to launch spacecraft. The key is to know when close approximations are sufficient to the task at hand, unless precise explanations are truly required. That requires good judgment and a determination to focus on the observed facts and not one's client's agenda.

I want precise explanations when repairing a car I drive at high speeds in and around others not to mention carrying passengers.

You may think you can abserve your way around this and take foolish short cuts but, it would be a mistake for others to follow such foolish advice.

"client's adgenda"????????????? I thought we cleared that up in your thread that was deleted

What exactly is your adgenda bobby? To se how much bad advice you can give? To see how many engine failures you can cause with said advice? To crib others ideas and claim them as your own to inflate your self appointed genius status? Or to tell people to search using google?

My agenda is to give you something to argue about for you own amusement with some info that you feel that you're sure about even when you have been emphatically proven wrong by others who are experts and have actually conducted business consistently in that manner. The diesel thread contains proof of this for posterity.

Your brand of amusement seems to be gloom and doom.

Oh I suppose its better for you to unload your terror on us than people who actually matter to you.

Keep talking my friend. Henceforth I'll only reply to your posts with the words
" Hosanna ! ", if at all. That will probably go a longer way than anything else that anyone else could do.

YES! I encourage anyone to read those threads bobby. It is patently obvious that you hand picked a very few from a large group of qualified "experts". You continue to try and demonize those with actual solutions, those who oppose your risky schemes with good sound reasoning.

Is reality that gloomy for you bobby. Does my truth sting while you hide in your internet fantasyland?

Unload my terror.... seriously?

No one you cited had tried the technique. That included yourself. It was all hearsay and superstition, frightening people into thinking that diesel would destroy their engine.

The one expert I focused on had done it for 20 years on the same car in a more extreme way than I suggest, and when he tore down the engine subsequently, he found no problem with the bearings (damaged bearings was of course your particular brand of woo woo on the thread).

Yes, I must be cherry picking 'em.

Oh forgot.

Hosanna !!
