Some general cooling system questions.

First off which temp thermostat is best to use on a 1951 288 engine. I know in their time they used 160-degree thermostat if using alcohol because of its lower boiling point. But with modern glycol anti-freeze would you still use the 160 or go to a 180-degree?
Second on the heater hoses, are they all 5/8"?
Third, if checking the automatic transmission cooler in the lower radiator hose, what would be a safe pressure to use to check it for leaks?
Thanks John
