I have not ran it so hot that the needle hits the stop peg, but I bet I could if I turn off the heater and race hard. It is now summer and running the heater is unpleasant for me.
Is there someting in the motor other than the thermostat that will make it run so hot other than a worn out radiator?
SHould I poor radiator cleaner in it or will that cause some unforeseen damage? SC

SInce the GL has been sitting for about 7 years I am thinking its the radiator but when I look in the filler hole, there is a plate in front of the radiator tubes and I cant tell if they are plugged. Thanks . for the suggestions. SOmetimes when I work on this thing I find out it is not a normal car. By the way, The fan is coming on automatic when its hot. Im about to run some radiator cleanner threw it to see if I gets any cooler SC

I ran the radiator cleaner in it anyway and some chunky stuff came out. While I was warming it up with the radiator cap off the thermostat finaly opened and woosh. I got a 2 foot hurl of water and anti freeze out the radiator cap. It made me think that there was more than just hot water pressure and that maybe some slipping head gas pressure was included. OR maybe I should not run the car with the cap off. I need to check the spark plugs to see if any of the spark plug tips look messy. Does a head gasket on these Sub's involve engine removal? From the looks of things it might be easier than a regular inline 4.
