On the passenger side of the engine, I removed a 3-way bypass valve and 3-way fitting out of the rear of the engine and replaced it with a 2-way valve at the rear of the engine. I have seen other engines like this and read it would be OK as long as I don't go crazy while the engine is still cold. Problem: After the engine is warm, the Temp gauge sits PEGGED at 250 degrees while driving. I was initially very concerned, but what I noticed is that while idling, it goes back down to it's normal operating range of 180 degrees! As I mo

Afer poking around the engine while it was still warm, I realized that all the metal air pipes (duh, yeah i know, but it's important for heat conduction) were exposed to the warm engine bay air, and to the engine's radiating heat, and that the radiator's fan blew hot air pretty much directly on them. Touching all these nice pipes, I realized that the p
