Temp questions

Ok, first Rhino and first post.

I just installed a Black Rhino Temp gauge kit, because I plan to ride St. George quite a bit.

The only reference I have found to anything temperature related was on this site in July of 07. It said the fan should come on around 167 and shut off around 155.

My fan (by the gauge) turns on at 215 and shuts off at 210 while idling. Running around in 50 degree weather today, it ran around 215. Running uphill in lowrange pushed me really close to 250.

I never boiled over, I have a properly filled system, I have burped it twice. I am lost. Is there a chance the gauge might be incorrect?

Please help!!

You should be around 160/180 running around... tops 215/220 climbing... but 250... something ain't right.

Yep the location of the temp censor is important.

Actually followed the directions to the "T".

I spent an hour on the phone with Black Rhino, Jason and Brian were great. We determined the gauge or harness was bad, and my new kit is being sent out as we speak.
