Temp gauge

How do I read this gauge? Is it at 200 degrees or 210/220? I canít tell what line the 200 is for.

That's an oddly laid out gauge. I believe it is showing 220*

If you look closely, it's possible to see that the hash marks near the numbers are bolder than the intermediate ones. Therefore I'd say that the hash marks are on the 0, 180, 200, and 250 marks meaning that the gauge in the photo is showing just shy of halfway between 200 & 250, or as dang0g said 220 degrees.

Agree with above...so thats kinda pushing it. I would think it should be around 200-210 max.

That's an odd layout. It's anybody's guess, really, but I'm going to suggest the number 200 appears just before the mark it's associated with, not after, kind of like the other numbers on the gauge. That would mean that the needle is just short of 200 degrees in the photo (although I wouldn't argue too much against the 220 estimate that has been suggested).

The darker marks would seem to indicate that "normal" temperature is supposed to be between 180 and 200 degrees so they tried to make that range more prominent in the top center of the gauge. But they sure could have made the whole thing clearer.

Regardless of exactly how this gauge is laid out, it does appear the engine is running hot.

What type of engine is this?
