I had the same problem with my 49 deluxe 4 door sedan. After eliminating all other possible causes for overheating,I was left with one last possible cause, valve clearance.Mine were adjusted to .005 and.007. Too tight,didnt give the valves enough time in the seats to diffuse heat.Adjusted them to .009 and.013.larger number is for exhaust valves.Worked great problem solved.I assume that you know that these cars tend to run hotter than other makes.Mid range on the temp gauge is normal,and in the hot summer past mid range is ok.It says so right in the owners manual.Good luck

My 1949 288 was overheating as well. Like you, I tried all the usual fixes to no avail. So I bit the bullet and did a valve job and readjusted the valves. They were too tight. Opened up the exhaust valves to .013. This let the valves sit for an instant longer,allowing better heat transfer. The valves were a little noiser,but it solved the overheating problem. Tip:dont try to remove the manifolds as a unit.loosen the three bolts that hold them together and remove them one at a time. Good luck

I went through the same thing with my 288.I found out at last that the valves were too tight.Opened them up to .009 and.013.Its a little bit noisier but it now runs middle of the temp gage.
