If your Stat is at 160, when does it ever get the chance to turn over? My stat is at 160 too, and the temp in the drive way got up to 150, but never higher. I could tell something wasnt right because after I shut the engine off for a minute or two, and started back up, the engine dragged on restart. I also checked the hose setup, I have a newly installed BARR heat exhaust setup so my plumbing lines are simple. Run the back 2 inlets from the rear to the front top 2 stat housing nipples, run the lower two nipples to the heat exhaust. I also checked the front water pump and it had water, I added more and it ran out the stat housing so its open. Now I am thinking it might be the water pump, although its new. I m gonna get it out there on the water today and see what happens, it already feels like fall up here in Seattle. jeff ---------------------------------------- From: "Lee Shuster" <lee.k.shuster@...> Sent: Friday, September 14, 2007 1:56 PM To: "Evinrude & Johnson Boats of the 1960's and 70's" <omc-boats@...> Subject: Re: [OMC-Boats] Looking for the correct Thermostat I think the OMC OEM part no was 383307. Not sure but I think they are rated @... 150 F or maybe 160 F. I have a calibrated (digital) temp gauge I see 140 F at warm idle and 150-ish when cruising pretty hard.

Subject: [OMC-Boats] Looking for the correct Thermostat Hi all, Anyone know what the correct Thermostat is for a Buick Oddfire V6, 150hp? (boat is a 64 OMC deluxe) I called around and most of the books just go to the early 70's. Also, is it safe to run without a thermostat if I cant find one??
