Question about 1988 Mazda B2200
I put a Australian holden commodore 3.8ltr v6, auto(4L65) and diff (bw 3.08 ratio) (complete drive train from a vr 95 pre ecotec car) into a mazda e2000 pick up replaceing a fe2 4cyl 2ltr motor.
It has being converted for 6 yrs but having issues with over heating if I sit over 100ks for any lenth of time.
It has a large custom alloy radiator with thermos, so its not a cooling problem its internal !
I beleive some thing with the way the auto is working through the computer maybe ??? possibly over drive / trans lock issues it is now on its 3rd auto and second engine in the above time, with this always being a problem.
Under 100ks there is no issue it will carry what ever i want to load it with and power on, as long as i dont push it past 100klms
Check your thermostat first if it still moves you can usally pry open the ally tabs that hold the plastic tank on to the side of the rad, if its filthy or blocked i use a steam cleaner to blow it out. if it's a copper brass rad heat the solder and do as above.

I had a similar problem in my van, i later found that the radiator needed cleaning.it was partly blocked with gunk and couldnt cope with the flow at high speeds.....might be something to investigate.
