Here's to hoping! The previous guy said it ran just fine and dandy for them, said if they gutted it with a big turn in the summer that she'd get to 200.

 the gauge would get to 200.  Coolant may have been 165.  Verification of an actual issue is next step here. 

200 isnt an issue IMO.   Honestly the hotter it runs the better the fuel efficiency.  Fuel makes heat.  Heat goes 3 places.  Out exh, into water jacket and toward creating the pressure rise that will be applied to the piston crown in order to drive the rod down and spin the crank.  

If you wrap the exhaust and raise the stat, youve got 2 less places for the same amount of energy to be dissipated.  Guess where the remainder goes?  Into the crank.  

Best mileage:  highway in summer. 
Worst mileage: short trips in winter.

After much angst and hours of wracking my brain.... I am 99% sure I have it figured out. I was running out of ideas when it hit me.... It was not circulating water, but the pump had just been rebuilt.... Blockage? Air lock? Or some moron put a RH pump on the motor! Gonna order one tonight or try to find one relatively local. If this doesn't do it (it will) I'ma gonna have a cheap TJ for sale! Lol.

Hey big red I seen that you went to the stave mill awhile back hows that working out. Im in magoffin co. I used to haul in there quite a bit. I seen on the news that they are going to start building barrels I hope it works out because we can sure use the jobs around here.

The only fault I had with the stave mill coming to town was their minimum diameter on white oak logs. In 10 years there won't be a white oak over 10" dbh left in 8 counties.

Just another idea here, but hopefully you have it solved. Those Detriots had both left hand and right hand rotation coolant pumps. Any chance yours has the wrong one? I just replaced one on my 3-53 last fall. Easy job on mine, so I'm assuming it's about the same on a 4-53.

That was exactly the problem, no coolant flow. Someone threw a RH pump on this motor and it needed a LH. Like I said, I am a virgin to a Detroit, but after some research and hair pulling and talking to you all I finally figured it out. A three hour round trip drive and a new $150 pump and the ol' Jimmy runs cool as a cucumber! Thanks!
