Well Just got an exhaust system put on my 67, (ZZ4) and put a few miles on it, but it seems the temperature guage will not go any higher than 150-160. I have an Autometer Ultra Lite electrice temp guage, sensor in the drivers side head, and I have tested the thermostat to make sure its opening. I have a new Griffen aluminum radiator. Is this normal? When we first started the motor and ran it to during the initial break-in time, it did read higher, almost 200, but since it doesn't seem to get any higher than 150-160 at the most. Now this is only driving about 10 miles at a crack, but the car should be at a warmed-up operating temp by then shouldn't it? Do I have a problem? I don't think so, but thought I'd ask anyway.
