have you tried taking the t-stat OUT altogether....correct operating temperature will NOT be achieved but as a temporary fix may do you...for now, honestly believe you have a restricted radiator...perhaps someone used plain tapwater as coolant, then the block rusted and the radiator got stuffed...probably have had one coolant drain and flush, but now you should borrow your mechanics lazer spot thermostat, look for the blockages~

look underhood for signs of an overheat in the past...it was then that someone panic filled with water~ rusted up and now circulation is a problem...hate to suggest a harsh cleaner...been told "sea-foam" is everything it claims to be~ your call on trying to get 'er cleaned up~
