Something I picked up was that my mixture knob was dead against the panel on full rich. Which meant that every time I took off at full throttle the carb would "auto-lean" due to the engine pulling slightly forward on the mountings, thereby pulling against the mixture cable. So, make 100% sure your red knob is set at about 1/8th of an inch away from the panel on full rich. That brought my temps down by about 25 degrees.
