I have a brand new aluminum radiator…. And electric fan and my car will run cool at 185 when moving… even up to 70 mph. but if I slow down after that and sit still it goes well over 220… rev it up and it cools down. I just live with it. Head has not cracked yet with those numbers. Maybe it will… maybe it won’t. But I’ve thrown everything at it already… so I just drive. Idle is good… timing is good… vacuum is good. So idk. But I’m many wedding rentals in and no problems.

Now in the winter I’m good at any speed.

Turn the car off when done driving and boy watch that temp needle peg then.

My grandpa would complain about the same thing with this same car and the only problem he had was vapor lock… which I’ve mostly solved.

You might check the vacuum advance for the distributor. The advance suction may be leaking. The distributor bearings may be dry or full of junk. Ernie in Arizona
