Replaced thermostat and timing cover. No leaks. Put mechanical gauges in and the truck runs at 180-195 degrees. Is this normal?

180-195 is the temp range you should be running

what they said

have you looked at the tubes inside the radiator
if they are look like they have coral growing on them and the openings are reduced
it's time to have it cleaned (dipped & rodded) or replaced

check out the local stores , advance, auto zone & orileys
they sell'em for about $110 and price match
you could save enough to get 2 gals of coolant for free
