Well this cooling problem is done,and embarassing also.
Turns out thermostat was sticking closed.This new stat,puchased before head gasket repair was the culprit.
This part was pulled and checked 3 times.First before head gasket repair and it was open all the way.only ran it for about3 minuites ,did not boil coolant.
Second time after head repair it was open about half way when it was checked.OK for the temp of coolant at the time.
Third time it was slammed shut and also binding on the shaft really bad.
Took it out and ran without stat and car ran really cool.So bad stat.
Did put a new one in with Benz coolant and now runs just right/
So i wonder if it was closed when i checked it the second time and popped open when i unbolted the thermostat housing, fooling me into thinking it worked.
Well its done anyway.So the whole question here is do M103 AND M104'S have bad impellers.Looks to be NO.
Also i bought a new nissen radiator and it looks just like the aftermarket one.Looks to be from the same company.Thanks for all the help,Rich
