I had a 4 cyl. 162 lugger, which I'm turning into a 6 cyl 226. Question is, neither seems to have messed with a thermostat, and just ran freshwater through and stayed cold...
Should I stick with this or else how were they plumbed up? Still have to make sure the exhaust gets its water...?

The temperature regulation system on my Lugger 4 112 is a home plumbing style valve that you adjust by hand to get roughly the temp you want. If it overheats, open that valve a bit more to let more raw water in. If it's runnung too cold, shut it down a bit.
Another interesting thing they chose to not mess with is an oil filter. There's a magnetic drain plug to attract the metal filings, but no filter.
Simpler is better - I think.
