It was just over the 400  mark, not even close to 500.

Just a thought. On the 140 and 180 hp engines, the overheat sensor was set  
at about 575 deg F. Other engines got a 450 deg sensor. It is possible that 
 somehow your engine might have the lower temp sensor installed,possibly by 
a  previous owner.
