Temperature Check
« on: May 01, 2021, 01:22:43 PM »
Had the car out at a local Cars and Coffee this morning and took for a nice ride afterward.  I decided for first time ever to check the temperature of the motor using an infrared temp gun that I recently purchased to use on the truck project I'm working on.  I found this gun to be fairly accurate after comparing the readings to a reliable aftermarket temp gauge used on the truck.  When I got back to the garage, I left the car idling at operating temp while taking a few readings.  Please see the attached pics of readings at various spots.  Let me know your thoughts and what temps you're running if you've ever measured them.  Thanks!

Looks to be cooling the way it should.  Are you running with a thermostat?

Upper and lower radiator temps looking great.
Engine flange temp after a long run, perfect.

Ted your leaf springs are looking good, you’re all set for 2021.

Thanks!  The springs did come out nice and a quieter ride with everything done.
