Re: Hagerty insurance ?

Iíve had American Collectors for a long time, put in a claim for a 48 Chevy I had at the time. They sent out an independent appraiser and within a couple of weeks had a check for repairs.

Re: is it ok to run diluted antifreeze?

If your Flatty is running hot you have an issue! How do you know it’s running hot? don’t trust those gauges! use a laser temp gun to confirm actual temp.
