<VV> My overheat event

I have this combination in my 64 Brier and LOOOOOVE it.  I do go to 93 octane in the summer, although since it's 107 degrees on the old thermometer outside in the shade, I'm not driving it right now.  In the more Temperate months, I can use 89 with no knocks, but do get an occasional run-on.  I solve that by idling for a minute or leaving it in "D" when I shut down.

Recently I swapped the heads on my Rampy FC  110HP motor with .060 cylinders and 260 cam to 95 heads (thinking it would be gutless and temporary) . It runs so good , and NO signs of pinging even on our recent 95 + degree days They will stay in place. 2 years ago I cooked this motor on the Mohawk trail so hot the light was on and oil was boiling when I could finally pull over. It has used a little oil , but is calming down healing itself. Yes I did change the oil when I got home. I have driven it @ 2500 miles since with no ill effects other than keeping track of the oil.  I built another similar motor to swap out (with the redone 95HP heads , 060 setup, 304 cam etc) , but no need for it now.      so if you need one let me know.
