I am sorry for the confusion, the gauge seemed to bounce from 180 to 200 and at times it would drop to 160 and then go to 220 when I hit a wave. the gauge was pegged all the way before I started the enginge then when I started the engine and started to run it, it started to go down to 180 and then moved around. I hope this helps

was the motor cold or hot when started
cold motor =electric
hot motor will have temp go down when started once the water starts moving thru.

Most likely the sending unit, or at least something electrical. Sending unit will be in front on the intake, in the thermostat housing or sometimes in one of the heads.
