Ahhh the old trombone cooler in the fender. In 90+ temps I would get up towards the top of the guage but only in LA traffic, once at cruising speed it would drop a little. It seemed that once it got that hot, it was never really happy until it was off and fully cooled down. I'd experience hot starting issues as well.

I finally broke down and installed the elephant racing widemouth cooler with fan. I've only had one temp issue, was stuck behind an accidnet for 2 hrs in 85+ weather, but once moving agian it went down to 170 deg within a minute of at speed driving. Haven't had any problems since.
