Reply to "New motor, coolant temp creeps up between 195 & gets close to 230"

After fixing my radiator fan wiring and adjusting the timing after test runs my car feels great and is running cool. Timing felt best at 14 Degrees before TDC at idling at 800 RPM with the vacuum advance hose plugged. Vacuum canister Allen screw set all of the way clockwise to the right. Now it starts, idles, turns off, and achieves 5-6k RPM when I punch it going up hill from a dead stop with no pinging or funny noises. 🙂
