I have recently done a bit of work on my 72 Mini 1000.
I have fitted a new fletcher radiator, hoses and Thermostat
I ran the car for a few months and the temp gauge sat on around 80 /90 c and ran fine
I have since upgraded to a Minispares Stage 1 Kit, routing the Inlet manifold water intakes through the heater hoses on the tap side..,
I also fitted a new Heater Matrix
Car is running fine however the temp gauge now reads low 50s to 55.
I am a bit concerned that there is something wrong and I am not getting a true reading
Any and all advice is very welcome
