hey all new to the sight. i hope i am in the right spot. i have an 88 mighty max with the 2.0 motor. When i bought it a month ago i noticed how far the fan is away from the radiator, and the temp guage and sending unit were not working correctly. I have put an aftermarktet temp gauge in and put an electric fan on attached to the radiator. the timing belt and water pump were changed just before i bought the truck. i notice that the temp still tends to be on the higher side, but the truck doesnt have the characteristics of being hot other then from the temp guage. i took out the thermastat out and still climbs to 225 when ever the temp outside is hotter about 80 or above, and also climbs when going up hill. my question is it normal for these trucks to run on the higer side like this or do i need to be doing some more troubleshooting?
