Just an observation...When we were working on our 49/288 which came to us with the habit of overheating...we did all of the normal things...then out of frustration, we took the head off the engine and low and behold, the gasket had failed between the four center cylinders...a chemical test had not indicated the problem...changed the head gasket, and at the same time had the head checked for flat and ended up having the head trued up as well...also changed one bad stud, that would not hold torque, and Miss Prudence began to behave herself...Ernie in Arizona
