I have a 76 B and for weeks have been having
problems with the operating temp.  I am unable to
keep the gauge below 3/4 (standard electric
guage).  I removed the rad cap slowly with the car
idling at 3/4 on the gauge, and measured 189
degrees F at the filler neck.

So I ordered a new sender and replaced it.  Today
at 3/4 on the guage, it was around 195F.

I am in Mississippi where the temp today is around
98F and I have a 180 thermostat in the car.  What
kind of temps should I expect to get, and where
should 'N' on the guage be?
