My temp gauge always reads at about 5/8 when at operating temperature with a 180 thermostat. I have a friend with a heat gun and he gets 180 at the thermostat housing. I hooked up a digital gauge and a new sender on the passenger head and it reads around 180 at operating temp.

I was just curious what the scale is on the original gauge. Is 180 really represented as 5/8 scale?

Thanks!

Maybe I'll have to try a different resistor.
