Josh,
I meant to ask if you have thermostats in your housings? Is your engine running when you put the infra-red gun on them? Could you be getting reading off your exhaust manifold that are slewing the reading? The thermostat housings are very close to the exhaust manifolds. It would seem that if the water in your top tank is 150-160 degrees you shouldn't worry!

Yes, I have thermostats. Don't remember the exact circumstances, but if the engine had just been stopped heat could indeed flow into the thermostat housings from the exhaust manifolds for a few minutes. Next time I run the car I will check more carefully and report before I take any action.

Tom Georgeson replied the topic: Airtex fuel pump
Just got a reply from Airtex Products and they say that the E8902 is a diaphragm pump and that it is combatable with all modern fuels. I will still use it as it only puts out 2.5-4.0 PSI while the other one (E8011) puts out 5.0-8.0 PSI, too high for our cars.
