Thermostat

The thermostat housing was leaking, so I took it all apart and found no gasket. Also, the temp gauge hovered around 130 during water test. I took the thermostat out and dunked it in hot water. I noticed that is started to open/close at the 120 mark. I ordered a new 142 and gasket. Same hot water test with new t-stat shows open/close as advertised. So hopefully the temp will go to normal now.
Temp gauge still reads 120/130. I will test the sender and gauge from the info I found here:

I have a 142 t-stat in it. What is the normal operating temp you guys are seeing?
