Finished Blue El Camino but didn't like the temp of the car at normal operation...210 +

Spent several hours checking and rechecking top to bottom.....scratching my head

Last item I checked was the thermostat to confirm I installed a 180 degree one.

Somehow a 195 degree one was installed......

Replaced it with 180 and NOW the ELKY runs at 160-180 degrees.....STUPID SOMETIMES!

Thanks, at least it runs cool now.....some motors just never run cool as you want them to..!
Yeah, I've got a 160 in mine and it still runs 200 degrees or so in heavy traffic.
