Question about 1987 Jeep Comanche
Your thermostat seems too low, all emission stuff will not shift at too low of temp. There is nothing wrong with a 230 or higher heat soak condition. Pushing out coolant, however is inconvenient...If you are topping it up each time, consider trying to let is spit out during this heat soak and just drive it...it may stabilize after a time or two.
You cannot do anything about heat soak, except electric fans, but engines have always done it, it is physics and causes not harm.
Doubt there would be a different pump direction.
And I think 195 may be the temp that you want in thermostat... parts place has the spec.
If overheating, fix that, but your description did not say you overheat on the road...I would not get worried until gauge pegs.Temp is a good thing... Too low thermostat leads to premature engine failure and unnecessary emissions. you NEVER heat the oil enough at too low temp.
