Follow up to the follow up.  Oil Temperature gauge and water temperature gauges are reading too high while oil pressure gauge and pyrometer are reading too low.  I think I have a voltage or ground problem to sort out.  Hayden

> Followup, I decided to go old school to check out my engine temps so I dug out my round faced dial thermometer that I use in my turkey fryer.  Result?  Radiator fan turns on right at 199F, just where it should.  After some further measurements, I determined  that BOTH my oil temperature gauge and my water temperature gauge and potentially my pyrometer are not reading the proper measurements!  Now to find out why!  Senders are all the correct ones so I must assume there is a voltage problem to the gauges. need to find a better hot side connection.  Hayden
