Default Getting hot climbing hills lack of power fixed it

212 thousand miles on PT rebuilt engine new radiator fan water pump still getting hot when under load or on a hill about 240 degrees loses power getting on freeway and going up hills. Replaced cat converter runs like new, not getting hot and plenty of power.

Thanks for the post. Did the same for my Vette. Had it over in England for three years and had to use leaded gas. After I returned to the states started to have power loss problems until they checked the CAT and found it in 1,000 small pieces clogging the exhaust.
