1974 450SL with 128,000 miles
I got a new water pump to replace one that gave out recently, and a new thermostat, and my temperature gauge is reading hotter than it did before. I searched the archives, and most of the posts seem to have a gauge that is different than mine, or they are discussing things in that Celsius system that Americans don’t understand. So my question is just “Is the picture showing an acceptable temperature for driving around in 70 degrees Fahrenheit in a 1974 450SL?” I believe it is, but would appreciate some reassurance from those who know. Thanks.
