    Re: Van Stilling Running a Little Hot

    Pic doesn't show. The potential inaccuracy of the 30+ year old gauge has been discussed numerous times. Get a good aftermarket gauge that shows actual temps and you may find it's just fine.

    Can you recommend a decent temperature gauge? With link? How hard is it to install an aftermarket one? Thanks

    The thread below is recent and discusses the problem of a faulty temp sending unit, with the mod of adding a digital readout
    temp gauge:

    A co-worker of mine recently had this problem with an older Toyota Land Cruiser.
    He had a shop replace just about everything like you did, then found out it was a faulty ("new outta the box")
    temp sender.

    Were you able to fix it?
    Excited for my trip to Salt Lake City with my newly installed set of Nitto tires.
