TD14A suck or blow?

Even though the gauge on mine is non genuine, it runs almost exactly where that arrow is, sometimes just a fraction higher.
Also explains why it takes so long to cool down (to where I thought it should read) if it is already running at the correct temp!
Good advice about not letting it get hot, the head cracking threads on here are what made me want to do something about it in the first place.
I wouldn't mind getting my hands on one of those original temp gauges though, does anyone have one, and are they electric or capillary?

Probably more trouble than its worth, and since it "aint broke" then it can stay as is.

Vic says to keep the radiator full, and that is no lie. I don't know why it is, but IH did not run much of a water pump on these things. They move a fair amount of water by the numbers, but I don't think they were able to produce much force. Another large factor in cracking heads.

And some TD14 street tracks and chains and sprockets I'd like to sell.
