Restrictors won't ever stick shut, they last pretty much forever, and they're tunable. First thing I would check would be fan and shroud setup, to make sure you're getting the air through the radiator you should. that's after I replaced the t'stat with a restrictor.

we have always just took the guts out of the thermostat and just used that as a restrictor. there are alot of things that could cause it to run hot tho besides your thermostat make sure your timing is right and you are jetted right too along with monsters advise should cure your problem
