Just curious, what would be the correct reading for the temp gauge during moderate work? The above pic shows what my temp gauge reads. It never goes into the red, but always sits on the line. The coolant is full, clean, no air bubbles and no leaks. The engine never seems to be hot, never a bobble while running like you would expect from a hot engine. Should I be alarmed?

Things that can make a difference with electric gauges are the sender switch or a bad earth even a gauge can read wrong at times. I would think that the needle should be towards the lower end of the green under normal working conditions. Hard work would show an increase.
If you can get your hands on another sender switch and try that out to se what is happening. Or put a thermometer on the block near the sender switch to compare. If still have an issue how clean is your system?
