I've only run either a parts store reman or new units, and have never had cooling issues. In my experience, cooling issues generally result from errors in other areas of the cooling system, whether it be an incorrect thermostat for a 351C, using an aftermarket "performance" fan, lack of shroud, or improper pulley selection.
