Default What water temp does your GC 5.2 run at?

The GC I bought is slam filled with barrs leak. The PO decided to go that route instead of changing a leaking water pump. Heres what mine reads idling and its about 70 degrees today. Look right to you guys?

I run a 180 degree thermostat. Stock thermo is 195 if I recall correctly. When using the 195 thermo your motor should run around 210 degrees, that pic is in the range. Looks good.
