426 Running HOT! Any Advise.

I recently replaced coolant with Engine Ice and I don't see a noticable difference.
My left radiator is tweaked a bit with maybe 3 or 4 rows of fins squished out of 12 total but no leaks. Would this have a large enough impact?

The header pipe isn't in contact with the rad but it is in close proximatey by design.

Would the missing pilot screw cause the high temp issues? Would it cause a lean condition?
This should be a major "Doh" moment. There is no way to properly diagnose your issues until you get a new fuel screw.
So get on it.

It's a pain with a stock tank. Both seat and tank must be removed and then you need just the right tool set up.
I should it's just a pain from what I can tell with the Clark aftermarket tank hanging in the way.
Let us know how it turns out!

I'm thinking it must have been suckin air by the missing screw causing a lean/hot condition.
Thanks everyone for your awesome feedback.

That's normal. These big thumpers put out a lot of heat! Glad to hear you're back on the trails!
It does still run a bit hot but nothing like before.
