other items to check re overheating on Perkins 4.108

I too have a Perkins 4.108 on my Little Harbor 38. The other two items to consider checking would be the thermostat to make sure it opens at the rated temperature (do this on a stove, placing the removed thermostat in a pot of water with a cooking thermometer) and check and / or replace the temperature sender. What you listed as done probably fixed the problem, but if not, these are to two remaining items I can think of to look into.
