    I have a 2000 cx 613 with etech 427. I just put a cam in it along with new rods,mains and oil pump. Also put a new head on it. I started it for the first time today and it has a rough idle and then smoothes out as you run it up to around 900- 1000 rpm. Figuring that's the valves need adjusting. I ran it for about 35-40 mins and the oil and water temp was almost at redline. What could cause this? What do i need to look for?
