Bob, not sure if that reading is correct, under load. What I want is something that shows the actual temp, not a pegged out gauge. still not real sure that it is actually running hot, or if the gauge is loopy.

In reality, if it is NOT boiling the coolant, it is NOT too hot!

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seecan not disagree with what has been said. CAUTION: don't put much faith in IR thermometers! Bought two in same package at national hardware chain and they repeatably show 50F apart!!! Yes, I expect that if I bought a $500.00 unit,that it would be better IF properly used.

Mine is a Mastercool 52224 around $75 and its purty much dead nutz... I wore the first one I brought out I got it sometime in the very late 80's are early 90's... They are not accurate on every thing but most automotive applications they work great...

The other question about were you shoot it at YES the exhaust side of a head are around a exhaust manifold the surface temps will be much higher than the coolant temp...

Try one on yer N you will find the exhaust side top of the cylinder head to run around 400 deg. :shock: On a chebby small block were the temp sender is in the side of the head the head will run much hotter than the coolant sender reads...

That's why he needs to shoot his IR around a part that is not affected by other heat sources like the exh side of a head if he's trying to figger the coolant temp out...
