I left the washer on to reduce the wiping of the ring.

Have wondered if the cooling air on top of the head would affect the 
reading. Have mine on #2 and #5. Yesterday after several miles at 45 mph 
(2250 rpm) and 85F ambient #2 read 260-280F. Is this typical ?

Yes, nada. Thermocouple produces a millivolt signal (Westach is 9.6 mv at 
400F). Stock thermister is just a resistance device.
