Robert, if you can, could you check what markings (if any) are on the new GM coolant elbow you're installing?

Macdrive, how is this reply contributing to this topic?

Are you aware that we've had recent problems with GM coolant elbows?

Didn't see a made in china.

I used a craftsman TQ wrench one of the clicky ones. Get a snap or one or something. IMO, torque wrenches are not a place to go cheap

Back together, coolant filled, brought to operating temp burping it along the way. I think I got almost all the air out...will take it for a drive at some point. Thinking of giving the RTV a bit more time to "harden"

All right. Thanks for checking. Sounds like things are going well, and letting the RTV harden more is a good idea.
