I have a question for you...
I posted this same question on the full size jeep forum but i was hoping that some of you might also be able to help. I am usually on the xj forum but my buddy has a question that i hope one of you can answer for him.
He has an 83 cj that he bought with a wagoneer 360 v8 in it. Somehow he cracked a head and so he got the engine totally replaced with an engine from an 89 wagoneer, also 360 v8. but all that is history... The question he is having is that the engine runs at around 220deg. The first thing i told him to do is to see if the guy that installed the engine put in a new t-stat and what temp t-stat it is. Next after that would be to replace the t-stat and see if that is the problem. Before he got the engine replaced it ran around 200 deg. why would the engine raise in temp that much. The radiator is the same.
Thanks in advance for your help...
