Yes, as ESPRIT2 pointed out, a lean carb. can make the engine run hot. Please get a CO meter, colortune, or whatever to check your air to fuel mixture. Again, as previously pointed out, the cars originally came to the states quite lean. I have a CO meter and tune it to 4% or slightly higher at 2800-3000rpm. I don't know if your state still has emission laws for older cars like ours, but in Georgia there is a 25 year rule, which would have been 1999 for us.
