Partially Seized Engine

Hi,
Question: How do i know if my engine is overheating?
Or is that not going to be an issue anymore as the engine has been rebuilt?
Any other tips on maintenanace for the cruiser would be very grateful.

I am not very familar with engines at all.
My RHD BJ73 3b Engine with 70,000kms overheated and partially seized.
It had a cracked cylinder head which i have found out is very common. I have had the whole engine rebuilt :
Cylinder Head - OEM
Valve Spring OEM
Piston Ring Set OEM
Piston Set Sakura
Rod Bearing Set Taiho
Head Gasket Set Aftermarket
Oil Filter OEM
Thermostat with Gasket OEM

Thank You..
sophie

Partially seized? Is that like being almost pregnant?
