problem solved (mostly) put in new 4 core alum rad with 2- 9" pusher eletric fans on front. made careful mix with 50/50 coolant and added water wetter. fans are on thermostat. went to town today stayed 175 to 180 on the highway with a/c on at 55 mph outside temp 95 and 95% humidity. moving in town got up to 185 to 190 with a/c on hi and 95 degs outside. later got stopped in trafffic for about 5 min went up to 200 and had to turn off a/c. once moving agin dropped to 190 and less with a/c back on. came home on interstate at 60 stayed at 185 with 101 outside and 98% humidity. new 4 core helped for sure but still not getting enough air thru the rad when in traffic. but to be honest i left shroud off for now to see what it would do. plus there is a hugh gap around the rad and around the a/c condensor. just the way the bulkhead the rad is attached to and condensor being smaller than rad creates the gaps. i am going to fill gaps somehow and put shroud back on and try it again. but i think it is mostly fixed.
