In the mean time, I need to get some diveerters installed, as the temp guage does go up on a long idle time, but not enough to throw out water.

Thanks for all the knowledge you guys have,Henry
Install the head gaskets backwards and the engine will overheat unless extreme modification(s) are done to the engine.

The MEL flows coolant in reverse as to other engines. Coolant flow is designed to enter the rear of the intake (from the heads and cylinder barrels) and flow to the thermostat in that fashion, not through the cylinder heads.

Forget the block thermostats. They were deleted by LINC in the early sixties.
