Engine temp - what is considered hot?
I've got a '66, 289, 2bbl, C4, no AC. Engine was rebuilt about 2500 miles ago.
I had the car on the interstate for about an hour, at 65-70 mph, and the outside temp was 90-92. When I got home, and using a pistol type temp gauge directed to the radiator inlet, the thermostat housing, and the temp sending unit,I got readings at 211 - 213.
So is that considered hot?
I can go into everything I've done to the cooling system, but if 213 is the new normal, them I'm good.
Thanks for your advice.
