      Since Greg et al convinced me that the temp gauge should never get over 1/2 even after prolonged idle, I've bought and installed the fan shroud. It seems to be the ticket as I can leave the car idle for a long time now and the temp shows just barely over 1/2. The install was not too straight forward even when done in conjunction with the cam belt replacement as I had to have the crank pulley machined off to clear the fan after removing the spacer from behind  the fan. (all this is residue from the A/C removal) All in all I'm glad I've got the fan shroud and it looks pretty cool to boot.
