That last line"but that big wheel keeps turning and sooner or later it stop's at every one's door!!"  What does that mean?  What is a big wheel?

When you see the Grim Reaper himself ride up to your house on one of these, you know it's time to go:  http://originalbigwheel.us/   Don't let appearances deceive you  -  he's still the dude with that big ol' scythe.

Just returned from 3400 mile trip to Austin Texas and back to Chesapeake VA.  My 8v92ta used less than a quart. I'm using Rotella 40W.

T stats serve a dual purpose Scott control they the engine temperature and restrict the water flow from passing through the radiator to fast so the radiator and fan can do it's job.

 Look at the way the T stats are made 4 bars on top and 3 on the bottom on a DD T stat water never stops flowing and when they open it just lets more water flow around the housing.

The top never moves only the bottom cylinder opens and closes a simple design but it works.The last time I checked there were 12 different T stats for a DD not temperature ranges but models the partial open is the most common for a bus    

Keep your shutters you may need those even with T stats where you live fwiw without T stats the tempature will creep up and run hot most of the time

Why don't we run straight without Tstats? Thinking out of the box here, I have brand new radiator shutter Pistons so my shutters on my 102C3 are in perfect operable condition...couldn't I use them at "Tstats" on a cold day?

Too cool can be as bad as too hot...
The motor and it's metallurgy are all dependent on a set of calculations and coefficients (of expansion) engineered over many years of science and trial and error.... Shocked

Oh and then there is the matter of OTR heat...

I'll think of a few more...
