Post 350 SDL in Center City Philadelphia

Hello, I bought a '91 W126 350 SDL on ebay in August '09. I picked it up at the Mineapolis airport and drove north into Canada. Around the top of Lake Superior, down to Toronto and Niagra Falls, and then home to Philadelphia. 1900 miles (4200km). It had 155k miles on it with a new factory motor installed at 105k. Has FSH with the engine swap total $16k +. Just about two years later it now has 166,666 miles. My friend is a mechanic with a private garage with a lift. I pay for parts, bring the beer and hand him the tools. We have done a lot of maintence and some fixes: water pump and the usual parts that seem to go when a car turns 20. Having some cooling issues right now. Replaced the coolant, thermostat, and clutch fan. Temp went down, but now holds steady at 90 - 95 C. Too hot. Always rock solid at 80C in the past. Looking for fan switches now, thus why I am here. Vacuum issues and new EGR next. Been a reader in the past. Happy to be here now.
