have just put my 351 into my xf . Motor has been recond a while ago then was left sitting for a while in doors. i fully did all the gaskets befor i put the motor in. Headgaskets , sump ect. New 3 inch alloy readiator and water pump. new hoses ect.
Now the problem is it seems to be building pressure in the cooling system. every time i take the rad cap off there is a release of pressure.
Any ideas????

How much pressure? Is the engine dead cold when this happens? Is the cap new? what pressure is it? what thermostat is in it?
