Hi Bob,

Good point, this could very well be the case as my engine has had been  
rebuilt at least once. I'll check the temperature again the next I  
test the car. This one  is separate from the thermistor sending to the  
dash gauge if I'm correct? I believe there's another one in the old  
(pre-64) engine block that I still have. If that's the case I could  
probably try that one.
