But coolant is just fine, is working better than whatever old crummy thing that was in there...I did have to modify the housing for the Tstat to fit.

What's hot is the controls rock steady at 215, coolant is also rock steady at 185. Just seems to me like all that hot oil cooks the block a bit after shut down.

I think my big old billet fuel log and collection of fittings was transmitting a lot of heat to the carb...the hoses seem to be much better!

Thanks for your response
