You might want to install an aftermaket water temp gauge.  The stock water and fuel gauge run off a 9V regulator that is prone to failure resulting in higher temp readings when everything is actually fine.

Judson,
I suspect my '73 JH is suffering from this problem as a new thermostat was just installed but the temp gauge is fluctuating like crazy....One minute it's at the 3/4 mark and then the next its barely registering at the 1/4 mark. Is there a way to test the regulator to verify that it is indeed that, rather than something else?
Thanks,
Paul
