I picked up an infrared thermometer and the temps aren't as bad as I thought. These temps were recorded after 45 minutes of city and highway driving.

Valve cover: 150-160

I imagine it would if left idling long enough, but I haven't tested it. What would that indicate if it did overheat at idle? Fan works great, sucks cloth from the grille no problem.

Any idea what...

Yeah, I'm going to pull the screw out and take a look in and see if its clogged. I'm really starting to think it was the k-seal I put in there. If that's causing a clog (or clogs throughout the...

I thought about the timing being the issue, but there are so many other symptoms that make me think it's not the timing, especially now that the timing is relatively close to where it should be.

Pretty sure I wouldn't have been able to seat the distributor if the backwards "D" wasn't lined up correctly. I took my time getting the distributor to seat, pretty sure its not the distributor.

I'm thinking the k-seal I put into the system is clogging coolant channels.

Doesn't make sense to me either. Coolant gauge never went above 1/4 and it would typically sit just below 1/2. And everything except the lower radiator hose gets hotter than it did before all this. ...

Update:

I swapped out the new sender and sensor for the old ones and I was getting a reading again, I guess they were just bad parts, the sender at least.

I also installed a Nissan tstat. I'm...

It was a 170 tstat and I'm positive I installed it correctly, right side up and everything.

Going to have to pull it anyways most likely to get to the bottom of this.

Man, I thought I got that oil pump lined up perfectly (11:45), but I guess that would explain why I can't quite get to 10 BTDC.

I'm assuming its a connection issue, given its a brand new part,...

Any put RTV or other sealant on their valve cover bolts prior to installing?

Trying to think of every way to prevent coolant leaking into the crankcase.

Thanks, I may do that. If the pistons have been marred by valve strikes, would they need to be replaced? Does not seem like that would affect compression.

That's the plan. I'll be doing a leak down test at some point to determine if being out of time has bent any valves.

Would burnt coolant coming out the exhaust confirm bent valves? I have...

I don't see how removing the front cover could have popped the rear corner of the head gasket. I think a more likely cause of coolant leak is either the front of the head gasket or the front cover...

Was getting a choppy exhaust and white smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe and from around the exhaust manifold. I did spill a little oil on the manifold.
