  • Cool/Heat: temp gauge

    My 62 Hawk temp gauge reads "normal" most of the time but will peg out past 240 when engine is NOT overheating and then will fluctuate towards normal and 240. Sending unit was replaced when engine was overhauled not long ago. Suggestions?

    I would say that the wire from the sender is shorted from time to time.

        If you use 50/50 antifreeze and a 13 lb pressure cap the boiling point will about 260 degrees fahrenheit.

          My Champ had a similar malfunction that I finally chased down to the wires on the gauge being reversed.
