It is possible to install the stat backwards on the 617, but I doubt that's the problem if the engine temp is normal. I don't know what would cause these symptoms. I guess I would start with the monovalve. I would try unplugging the monovalve, you should get maximum heat with it unplugged (fully open).

I have the same problem with my 300D. I have tried a new thermostat, monovalve and by-passed the auxilliary water pump. The thermostat did the best job so far with getting the temperature up but it still goes cold if I go over 3750 RPM's. It will not get hot again until I let it idle for a couple seconds. If I am going down the road, I can shift into neutral for 3 seconds and then back into drive and its good again. I think I may have a bunch if chunks of stuff or old stop leak clogging the heater core and it will like fall off until the flow comes up then it will clog the tubes again. Either that or there is a flap of hose hanging in the flow path somwehere that pops out if the flow comes up. Sorry for the long reply, I have the same issue as you and these are the things I suspect on mine. Eric.

The fastest and easiest check to make is for a torn monovalve diaphragm. Don't bother with any thermostats, heater cores, etc. until you perform this 10 minute check.

I have the exact same problem, no heat at higher rpms if I turn the heat on while already at-speed, or if I turn it down, then back up, at speed. Always have tons in the city. Eventually I'll replace the diaphram, but I am delaying as long as po$$ible.

Something reaallly simple - Firewall Drafts.

Noticed the rubber firewall boot for speedometer cable on mine became dislodged leaving 1/2" opening that was freezing me to death. Other rubber boots include the hood release cable, oil pressure guage line and couple of electrical lines too. Also corroded battery trays have been known to eat through sheetmetal on the passenger's side.


Check the firewall from the engine side for leaks. Thats what I'd do before performing exploratory surgery on the heating system.
