Generally around the second mark with good airflow coming through the front on an average day.

Just put a thermostat in it, it's designed to run one and it will assist with the engine reaching the optimum running temp quicker which is a good thing.

For the price of a thermostat the battle was lost. Put in a new one.Mine runs at about 1/3 up the scale. Gets to about half way o a long up hill with trailer.
