deciding on autometer gauges at the moment. Have a choice between;
Now I did do some searching and I can see what some of you run, but what I am wondering is how much the temp varys past 180F. Will i ever need it to go over 240F?
starting at 120 or 140 doesn't much matter because of the thermostat opening at 180F. So its just the max temp i am thinking about.
I think the 120-240 is better because as it gets near 220F which is high the needle will be at the scary end which is better than only being half way round and your motors already fried! what ya reacon?
also they now have a 50-115c version which is a copy of the 120-240 version just in metric. this might be better... not sure. because the thermostat is in F, reading temp be better for mechanics in C or F? hmmm
