Pull the thermostat?
Ok, here's the deal. I just replaced my water pump on my '97 7.3. I drained the radiator. With that, and the pump removed, wouldn't that be the majority of the water/coolant?
After it was buttoned up, I can only get 5 gallons back in. With an ambient temp of 50-ish, I can't get the gauge needle to move much, as usual. I poked across town, ran 80 on the freeway, but the needle doesn't move much. The coolant is at the full level mark in the res.
Should I remove the therm and get the system full, then replace it, or what?
