    I've read with engine ice the engine can reach over 400'F doesn't boil over but destroys the engine, try prestone antifreeze 50/50 273'F boil over temp.

    How is your clutch ? The overheat comes usually from the clutch slipping.
    Bye bye France, finally back to Texas !

    Is piston melted at exhaust port side? If it is, itís lean or air leak.
