~Subscribed~ I've got a '78 with similar issues. My work so far has been new 3 core radiator w/tanks, Flowkooler w/p, springs in lower and upper radiator hoses, full cooling system burp (with heater fully on), fan shroud, new controller for e-fan (takes reading from upper radiator hose now) 50/50 water/coolant mix. Now I haven't drilled a hole in my thermostat yet but after solving an oil leak I'm performing the Contour fan upgrade. There's likely going to be more than a few folks that'll remark 220 is just fine but I'm finding that they're driving XJ's and YJ's that by design have higher operating temperatures than these '70's V8's to meet emission standards.
The parts shop that stocks part for Skylab II will not have parts for our year/model of Jeep
We cannot accurately judge the trajectory of a speeding critter (cat, dog, sasquatch)
Record heat waves and floods only occur when we visit that area
