Are you sure it's working correctly? There's a reason they were made without numbers.

Mine goes ALL the way to the right. My mechanical gauge never gets above 190. I can watch it and tell when the thermostat is open/closed.

Install a kit like this so you can hook up a garden hose to your cooling system;

Then add something like this to the system and follow the directions;

Do this before you pull the radiator to have it boiled out (you want to boil out any debris that may be dislodged by the flush process).

This followed by filling with fresh antifreeze and distilled water should help your system a lot.

You have to remove the t'stat to back flush.
Rod-out is the best thing for a brass radiator.
Good coolant and add distilled water as needed.
Don't use 'tap' water because of the chems in it.
