Pat - I have been telling my wife all along that it was destiny we ended up with the 310.
I wonder what that makes the percentage, "Rick Hill's that own 310's"? Let's see, if there are 50 on the road today, that would be 4% that are owned by Rick Hill's.
That's got to be the highest ratio of something somewhere to someone???

I had taken my dash air out when I was unable to replace the "squirrel cage" fan blades. However, I have now found a perfect replacement in the paint department of my local Tru Valu. Sold as a paint stirrer was my squirrel cage fan blade mounted to the end of a metal rod. I bought one and took it off of the metal rod and then put it on the motor for the AC, perfect fit and can not tell the difference from the original, other than it is not broken. I will drill a hole for a set screw so this one does not get warped like the last one. Now I have a winter project, replacing my AC.

I have a fresh air inlet behind the right headlight on my '86 345.
I would kill anyone who took my dash air out! It does get hot in Oklahoma.
The engine runs about 200-210 whether I run the a/c or not.
I put a flex-a-lite thermostat controlled electric fan engine oil cooler under the front bumper, then I put my trany cooler in front of that. Works great! The fan only comes on when I traffic, unless I count the time I (didn't know)ran into bunch of bugs and it stopped it up. The trany gauge went up like a rocket!

There is a outside opening somewhere on my '89
It must be close to the engine as I found out coming back from Topsail back in January...
Had a large backfire starting off from a red light that produced a puff of smoke from under the 'hood'
Miliseconds later , the smoke was coming out the AC vents inside.
Was very tense for a few moments.

Cause was a blocked exhaust crossover valve.
Intake got very hot, and when I hit the gas starting off, it hit the hot surface of intake and puffed.

I'm going to keep mine in place until it gives trouble, or cost too much to fix.
