Cheers I think we finally found the problem oil level in the transmission was too high.  Today it was 90 degrees an humid, uphill  both ways . The engine temp stayed at 195 Trans at 200 .
Thanks for all the ideas were to look especially spartan

Glad you figured it out, and a simple fix to boot.

I figured a few things out about mine.  I put a 170 t stat in, and backed my governor down to 2500 load.  I noticed one day that if I ran the rpm in the 2300-2400 range that the trans oil did not heat up near as much.  My tach may be off, dunno it might be spinning faster than it reads and might not have had enough oil to cover it.  Not quite as snappy but still will pull good.  I washed the radiator fins out as well.  The warmest I have run it lately is air temp of 80 degrees.  Shorter runs but still steep climbs.  engine temps never got to 200 and the trans was usually around 200.
