Kindly expand your words-
What problem you were facing from brake master cylinder? Is there wheel jamming type some?

Hi, Reddy
I read your post today. Over Heating in rebuilt engine, causes may be many.
1) rings gap may be less. This leads to tighten of pistons
2) main & connecting bearing seating .
3) running in of the engine with no load. At least for 6hrs.(3hrs in circulating cold water.3hrs circulating same hot water)
4) engine head surface. Should be clean, even, no pores near the valves.
5) a/c condenser should cleaned by pressurized air. Radiator to be over hauled thoroughly, check for leakage. Paint it dual black. heat dispersion will be better.
6) never use a/c at least for 1000km.
7) change all the rubber hoses.
8)pump calibration and proper timing is amost.
Lastly, I don’t think brake has something to do engine over heating. Brake problem will heat brake disc/drums.
