Well after throwing things around my garage... ::...and and a bunch of responses I took the thermostat out of the engine, and put it in boiling water. I watched it and it looked like it moved a little so I thought it was good. Well just to be safe I got another one. I dropped it next to the other one in boiling water and the difference was phenomenal! The new one opened a whole lot more. So I installed it and BAM it does not overheat. It is just frustrating because the one that is bad was brand new too. Seriously THANKS to all those who helped me get EVERYTHING running right! LATERZZ

I always recommend people test these in hot water before going to the trouble of installing them.

I'm glad you got the problem fixed. :)

I had a bad(new) t-stat once, of course I had to rebuild the motor after I figured it out. But I probably needed it anyway. :p
