Re: samurai overheating
The ground wire idea is a good one and a cheap fix. When the temp goes up the impedence in the water temp gauge goes up and gives you a higher temp reading. If the ground wire is bad or getting there, it will have an even higher impedence and result in a higher temp reading. If that doesn't solve the problem, making sure your engine has a good ground is always a good idea.
