1971 Oldsmobile 442 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic

I have a newly rebuilt olds 455 motor, slightly high performance.

the theromostat is a 160 degree an is opening up in probably 2 minutes.
I have a new water pump, new alum radiator, fan shroud is on, spring is in bottom hose, timming is set at 8 degrees.
