I bought a lever operated pressure releasing cap and ran it at idle for a while. I did see many air bubbles coming up through the reservoir. However, I still have no flow into the engine at all. The radiator is still full and my defroster is blowing cold air. I can't believe the water pump would have just stopped working.
As far as the cam install, everything went fine. I am not happy with the cam I installed because it seems to be far more extreme than how it was advertised. It is a custom spec cam from Lunati and it has a radical idle (has died while running). I am hoping Johan will be able to remedy some of it. I didn't want to change the valve springs or add a stall converter.
Any more ideas on the cooling problem would be greatly appreciated. I am planning on taking out the thermostat and seeing if I can tell if the water pump is spinning when I turn the motor over.
