hot in vegas

i just moved to las vegas from northern california, and my car just can't seem to handle the heat. it runs about 185 idling and about 200 if i let it idle at the really long stoplights here. the oil pressure will drop below 15 and i have had it stall twice at a large intersection, when it stalls it won't start for ten minutes or so. it really sucks having to push my heavy benz out of the intersection on a 110 degree day. so i bought a 162 degree thermostat some of that orange mercedes coolant and a new radiator cap. my questions are, where is the thermostat housing and where is the engine coolant plug? the car is a 1973 280 se 4.5. thanks.
