Okay I will not be so sensitive.
I have had this engine in for three years and have not killed it yet and do not intend to...unless I don't get this thermostat figured out. I may need a new thermostat has anyone recently found one? Are there vendors that still have them because last I looked which was a while ago they were hard to find. I will be investigating mine on Thursday and will know then just why mine is not working right.

Please let me know what you have observed as per our discussion. . .
When engine is stone cold, the little lever on the cross shaft should be tilting forward. After driving around for 5-10 minutes it should be closer to vertical. After you get home from driving around, it should be vertical-to-almost-tilting towards you, and should have a little clank when you let go of the lever as the fail-safe spring smartly opens it.
