It has overheated since the day I got it. He bought the waterpump and I installed it. I am heading home right now to do some investigating. I think I have an idea what may be causing it but I will know more tonight. I think the thermostat housing is the wrong one and it allowed the stat to bend up into it and block the flow. I'm almost willing to bet that when I get home my new stat will be stuck up in the housing like the old one was. The po put that housing on it when he changed the motor and it was just one his dad had laying in his barn. He had barely driven the jeep since he put the motor in. He said it didn't overheat at the blessing and that was his last run with it. I think the stat wedged out of place between now and then. It is the only logical thing I can come up with.
