Thanks for the help everyone.  I appreciate it!

SAAC Forum Discussion Area / 70 Mustang Temp Guage/Water Temp Sender
« on: October 18, 2023, 04:26:40 PM »
Realizing that 53 year old guages were not that accurate to begin with and may even be less now, I have a question:

I have a 70 351C with what appears to be the original water temp sender, a Flow-Kooler Robert Shaw 180 high flow thermostat (with brass restrictor "ring"), a replacement (NPD) guage cluster harness, and am drawing power for a Holley with electric choke from the temp guage power wire.

Runs great, no signs of overheating regardless of ambient temp., etc.  I generally drive it for 30-60 mins at a time max.

My temp guage needle usually sits on the "C", or slightly past., which I think is a bit low.  I let the car idle for about 25-30 mins once and the needle moved almost to half way between "C" and "H"

I think the guage is reading low and am concerned it may be because of the power draw.  Do I have a problem, or am I chasing something that isn't there?  :) Thanks!

A respectful correction: Flight 93 crashed in Shanksville PA.

Yes, "they" can tell, on average, how fast you were going by your entry and exit times through EZ Pass.  In the case of the PA Turnpike, this isn't much different than the toll tickets that predated EZ Pass.  They recorded entry and exit times as well.  No, speeding citations are not issued based upon EZ Pass times. 

There is a bracket that bolts to a stud on the rear of the radio chassis.  The bottom of the bracket is a "spring clip" that slides onto the radio support.  Once you remove the front trim panel, and the front radio bracket, you can reach behind the radio and undo the bolt, but it's a pain to get to. You should also be able to gently move the radio side to side while pulling towards you and slide the clip off the support.  The radio is still plugged in to the harness, so don't pull too hard.  Once the clip slides off the support, you can easily unplug it.  Here is a url to a pic of the rear bracket:

Was she stopped? I didn't see it.

Well, either the battery temp. got to the point that power was restricted to prevent damage, or, they were taking it easy as the most important part was it "passed the test".......

A Mustang Mach E AWD posted the best acceleration times and shortest stopping distance of all vehicles tested at the most recent Michigan State Police vehicle testing at the Chelsea Proving Grounds.  It also had the slowest lap times of all vehicles tested at Grattan Raceway.
