  1. VERY COOL.... That could definately have been your problem... Do a search of Rollingthunder, he had a blocked purge line and it caused overheating... For future reference DO NOT blow into the purge line, IF you had a block you could clear it and NOT know you had one... The coolant not coming out of the purge hose strong was your clue... Take another look at your purge bolt in about a week to make sure its not clogging up. IM DEFINETLY GOING TO RECHECK THE BOLT THIS WEEK END JUST INCASE MORE GUNK GETS IN THERE.YEA MIKE I DID MAKE SURE I TOOK THE LINE OFF COMPLETLY BOFRE I BLEW INTO IT, I DINT WANT THAT STUFF TO GO INTO THE HOUSING.BY THE WAY THE WIFE GOT JUST BACK FROM HER RIDE NICE AND SMOOTH NO PROBLEMS THE GUAGE WENT A LITTLE PAST 12 BUT SHE SAID IT WENT RIGHT BACK TO 12 AFTER A MIN. OR SO. I HOPE THAT WAS IT AND THANKS AGAIN GUYS FOR ALL YOUR HELP
