Monte, have you considered the radiator cap?  It's cheap to replace.

The second item I'll mention is one that people hate to hear.  Did you
loose any coolant when the gauge indicated hot?  No?  Hmm.  How could
that be?  It over heated but no coolant came out?  Perhaps it didn't
over heat, maybe you have a bad sender or bad gauge.  (I once read the
best fix for the, "my car is overheating" comment is to tape over the
temp gauge).

Another thing that comes to mind is the voltage stabilizer.  If it is
sticking closed the temp and fuel gauge will receive a full 12v and they
will read high.  Just a thought.
