Just a suggestion but have you looked for leaves and debris in your fan impeller? There may also be covering the oil cooler under the passenger side cylinder head cooling tin. And if you really dig in pull both side cylinder head engine tins and look for debris on top of the cylinders. I believe one method of making sure the thermostat is installed correctly is to start your 914 and let it warm up to operating temperature. Then attach your themostat cable to the cooling flap linkage. Since the linkage is spring loaded it should automatically force cool air over the oil cooler and skip the warm up process.
