I tested my MGA 's capacity to cool by running it at approx. 65-70mph during an 
80 deg.F day.   Sure enough the temp. gauge rose to about 200 deg.F.    Upon 
arriving home I switched off and carefully removed the radiator cap and 
inserted two thermometers into the filler neck.   I then restarted the warm 
engine and revved it slightly for coolant circulation.   Both thermometers 
matched each other but registered twenty degrees cooler than the instrument 
gauge, indicating that the gauge is out of whack.
Is this the correct procedure for testing the gauge, and is ther conclusion 
correct?   Can the gauge be repaired, recalibrated, etc. tested for relable
