  1. Your best bet is to use a heat temperature gauge to establish what the engine temperature is in  comparison that to the car gauge, that will give you some idea if the gauge is remotely correct.Obviously there are cheaper guns available.

  2. The thermostat is there to reduce water flow though your radiator to help get the engine up to temperature quicker, once fully open say about 180 F, it serves no further need. First thing to check would be your timing, but temps of 195 to 205 F are normal. More damage is done to an engine running at to low a temperature.

    Just the sportsroofs due to limited trunk space

     Great, thanks for that, mine must have disappeared on the ride over here. Also looking into the more modern space savers, just not sure if the stud pattern is the same.

    While waiting on the shims I was running it on the stands again. As you do. And I noticed the right rear wheel appears to wobble slightly more than the left. Tires and wheels are new and I am wondering if my vibration issue may be a bent axle. I don't know what's normal and what's excessive. Could I get your thoughts on this.

    Also, I bought a digital protractor yesterday and the drive line angles difference is 3 degrees. So the 4 degree shims I have ordered are too big. I will order some 3 degree shims shortly

    Swop the rear wheels over and see if its the wheel or not.
