304 Normal operating temperature?
What is the normal operating temperature of a 304? I know it probably depends on what thermostat is installed, but when I let the CJ7 idle it runs normally around 160 to 180. When I start driving down the road it drops to around 140 and a little below. I have never had an engine run that cold before and this is my first CJ, all my others have been XJ's and YJ's and they stay pretty consistent at 190 to 200 even when driving around. It's had been around 25 to 40 degrees outside so that could be a reason why it is running so cold.
