Joe,

That's a pretty accurate summary of most of my last year's research. It's why I chose the raw-cells/external-BMS path.

It sounds like you're right on top of it. The behavior you are describing is very consistent with a fuel supply obstruction, most likely in the carb.

Yes, the spacer allows you to use a stock automotive thermostat, but it is "single action". This requires the additional use of a restricting valve in the bypass loop.
