I would check the resistance of your coolant temp sender. mounted on the head between cylinders 1 and 3. A single green wire plug-in connector. If the gauge reads 260 degrees F the resistance through the coolant sender should be 55 ohms. if it reads close to this number but the engine is not that hot replace the sender and see if that corrects the gauge reading. If it doesn't then you may have a bad gauge.
