I want to jump in here too. I just finished a rebuild on an 85 380SL. I took it 20 over to clear the taper in the sleeves and damage from a bent rod ('nother story). The car had not been running for a few years before I bought it. I'm having trouble with it heating in traffic. It's fine on the hiway and stays around 90c, but when I get in traffic it'll go out the top. My best guess is the fan clutch, but I'm not positive. My other guess was the thermostat but the symptoms don't seem right and from I've read here, I would be seeing the problem the other way round. Anyone had dealings with a problem like this? (Ain't the time - done checked that)
