fur ball on thermostat's

just to throw this question out for an opinion.. my '51 ford flat head V8 truck over heated somewhat last wkend.. pulled the stat's out and both stat's were 75% plugged... like someone put a throw away cloth in the cooling sys for some reason and didn't take it out.. looked like a cat fur ball sticking out of it.. but i'm wondering if there might be something inside the cooling area that came apart ????? i can't think of anything but never can tell.. the rad was orig, so i replaced it with a new rad, new stat's, hoses and even pulled one of the water pumps to ck it..
it better not heat up now... my wallet is lighter now...

I'll bet a fellow could write a best-seller about the stuff that's been pulled from flathead cooling systems.
