I then bought a fan shroud and installed it. Mine now runs 180-190 no matter what Iím doing. Been happy with it.

Gotta have that fan shroud...if not, you're just sucking in air from the wrong side of the radiator.

I got a nice size sheet of thick garlock that has worked very well as a gasket under the carb for heat between the intake manifold. The only thing I have that is phenolic is a walking stick. It will take on any overly aggressive dog in the neighborhood while walking my dog on the leash
