Re: Engine temperature gauge

I put in a sending unit from classicparts and it read really hot so I installed a gauge directly on the motor and it turned out that my motor was actually running hot. After a rad and fan change the motor stays between 180-190 according to the motor mounted gauge and the dash gauge stays right around the middle.
