Good compression? What are the readings? Has anybody checked the exhaust system for restrictions? This includes the catalytic converters.

Also, your valve and/or ignition timing may be retarded (late). That'll also cause it to run hot as well. HTH. -Jim

The catalytic converter was removed bob and js08016 the timing is perfect
