Studs went in at the dealer. The dealer would not use the gaskets I provided. So, they used new stock Ford gaskets when they put the studs in. It was about 15,000 miles ago. When I first put them in I didn't have this hot cycle coming and going while towing. It seems odd to be because I can be cruising down the highway @ 2,250 RPM with EGT's below 800 and watch the temp gauge go on up to the "H". About one second later the check gauge idiot light comes on and then by about one more second later the gauge goes right back down the the middle. My first instink says thermastat. But, if it was the thermastat wouldn't it do it while not towing at well? So, now I really don't know what it is.
