Mechanic dictates to you? Time for another tech that will service your needs.
The carbs are common issues with these motors. They need constant service. Fuel filter is a good place to start but I do not believe that is your issue.
Changing the thermostat is a good start. It may or may not resolve the overheating. Check the radiator for flow.
