LOL, I have ran plenty of cars, tractors, and boats without thermostats. They struggle to reach op temp, especially in cold weather, that is it.the manager of our molding room proved it every single day all day long. Thing is, water is a phase change material.
Put a pot of water on a stove and turn the burner on high with a thermocouple in the water and run a timer.aproaches
You will see that the thermal energy that the water seems to accept (reflected in temperature change) is not constant across time. And you will notice it especially for the last some degrees before the water boils. It takes a very long time to cross that last threshold.
Water/coolant indeed are capable of state change, they can go from liquid to sold (ice), or liquid to gas (steam). If your cooling system approaches either of those state changes it has catastrophically failed.
I apologize to OP again, this is a tangent unlikely to yield a solution, I should not have brought it up.
