Well it isn't that much but I can see it. I am not aware of a problem getting these cooling systems bled but I will watch and see if it decreases. Sure have a powerful heater now!Possibly just the thermostat or even the sender.
Mine stays right between the R and M

Mine came from Dieselsite also. I think it is hunting less now, and it wasn't that much to begin with.Steve my 203 degree came from Dieselsite.com
Found my old box but it does not have a part number, just says for use in the 1996-2003 7.3 powerstroke.
Only issues I have found with it are in my head when the temp goes up higher then i think it should be. I have noticed no increases in anything besides better heat in the winter, but that is a very good plus for me.
Bottom line will I do it to my other truck, probably not.
Why would that happen? I have pulled a race car trailer in 100*+ weather @ 80 mph. and engine temp gauge was always stable on the low end. The thermostat has raised the minimum temperature but once it is fully open I can't see the temperature climbing.Glad to hear you got it figured out. Just be prepared come warm weather to freak out first time you pull a grade with a load and see the temp climb higher than you have ever seen before. It still gets me every spring.
It is now running at 1/2 and that is just fine with me. I guess someone might install a higher temperature thermostat and freak out when the temperature reads higher, but really what would that person expect?I am not saying it is anything to be concerned about but it will be higher then what you are used to even in the winter it is higher. After 20 plus years of daily driving and SCCA auto crossing/ rally crossing RX-7's with their aluminum rotor housings I have learned to watch my temp gauge at all times no matter what I am driving.
Our trucks are designed for the 203 t stat temperature to begin with, but I always like to warn people about what they will experience compared to what they may have been used to.
In 1996 I turned 50. I had sponsored my nephew in oval dirt track. I though I might want to race but wasPlan on 5/8 under real hard load depending. Glad you are one of the few that understand when you change one thing other things happen!
What racing do you do ?
