Well I drove my Poly 500 miles home when i bought it without knowing that the exhaust manifold heat valve was frozen shut, and it didn't overheat. I would say make sure your h2o pump is good, check what the heat rateing on the thermostat is, and make sure coolant is flowing through your radiator. Also did you do a 50/50 mix with water & antifreeze? Had a friend overheat from using straight antifreeze once, or at least that's what he said caused it. Good luck.......Pony
