Question...WHat should the normal operating temp be for this motor?  Mine has always run about 180 deg at cruise and about 200 deg at idle.   It's always seemed high to me but water pressure is fine and I've religiously had the water pump and thermostats changed and always flushed with fresh water.  The motor seems to run fine with the exception of the temps, aslo the  overheat alarm has never gone off.  Just wondering where it actually should be running at.

 

Thanks!

Bob

Hello normal idle temp is 145 and most temp senders are not accurate but used as a guide. the horn will sound and engine will go into slow mode if engine reaches 200 degrees. engine will also show signs of steam when overheating
