Thanks Guys, I appreciate your help. I guess I just don't understand what happened. It had been running fine and all of a sudden it's not. It seems that the common sense approach would be the stat since they are either open or closed. The water pump/ fan belt is adjusted to about a 1/2 inch deflection and in decent shape. The fan shroud is in place. I'll keep investigating. For me this is the fun part, working on the old girl.

A thermostat can be just fine today and tomorrow just plain and simple not open due to being stuck. I would do the water pan test to start with then go from there. Never good to throw parts at a problem till you know what the problems is. Your system may just need a good old vinegar flush for that matter but that is a bit harder to do this time of year due to vinegar will freeze
