Russell, this may have been covered earlier. If it has please disregard.

Is the temperature gauge reading correctly? Have you verified the engine temperature with another meter or device like a hand held reader?

What is the temp rating for the thermostat? Many try and use a 180 stat which is too high a rating for these engines. A 160 may be a better choice.

Did you assure the distribution tube is in place and in good condition? This tube is essential to properly circulating coolant through the engine.

Running hot a idle may be related to retarded ignition timing. Running hot at cruising speeds may indicate circulation problems.
