Thanks for all the responses.

Here is what I have done so far. Backedthe timing to 2 degrees. Added a auxiliary electric fan. Installed a 160 degres thermostat.

I know that the thermostat will not prevent the overheating but it let the engine run a little cooler. I checked the engine and radiator with infrared thermometer and it was pretty consistent and close to the gauge in the car

I have not driven the car under the conditions as last weekend so I don't know what the results will be. The engine is running cooler so maybe it will have a little more of a starting point toward overheating.
