Reply to "New motor, coolant temp creeps up between 195 & gets close to 230"

I would install a high quality mechanical temp gauge and compare it to the electric gauge.  You may just have a readout problem.  You could also have a marginal cooling system.  I have a large fluiddyne radiator and dual fans.  It doesn't do what you are describing.  The fans only come on when I am below about 35mph in traffic unless I am in high summer temperatures.  On the highway, they are rarely on.

P.S. I have two readouts.  The second is on my FITech display that has its own sender.  The stock gauge doesn't track very well and I consider it a crude indicator.
