220 degree's isn't too bad, my 68 Buick , equipped with a 280 degree
Auto Meter gauge would idle at a train crossing at the 280 mark. After
getting caught a few times in a one week span at the train the gauge
quit working after the needle went around and hit the peg at the 0 mark.
Bought a 325 degree Temperature gauge a week later & all was fine. That
damn car always ran hot, even after I put a HD 3 core radiator in. Funny
it never boiled over though.......
