Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. The first thing you need to do is determine the exact temperature of the coolant. The sending unit or the gauge may be faulty. Autoparts stores carry a device that measures coolant temperature. If the coolant temp is too high, you next need to ensure that the radiator cap is maintain a 15 PSI pressure. A faulty rad cap will allow the coolant temperature to go higher than normal. If everything is OK and it still overheats, perhaps your thermostat is faulty, staying closed too long. Since it is a small engine compartment with a large engine, it is possible that either the radiator is too small or your CFMs on your cooling fan is insufficient. The engine are in a Willys is limited. Stuff a big V8 in there and the air passing thru the rad may be compromised. DO you have a push or a pull fan installed?
