Default Temperature Sender resistance ?

Hi, I posted on here some time ago about engine failure and the general conclusion was get another engine! I have done this and have it fitted but the only one I could get which was guaranteed mileage and running was a wyz engine and the one which came out was a wjy, it all runs fine started lovely etc but the temp gauge seems to run a bit high, definitely higher than the actual temperature of the engine when tested with an infrared thermometer. the original temp sender has a different thread so can't be fitted to the engine. I just wondered if there was a difference in the resistance of the 2 different types of senders or is there something else I should be checking? also temp gauge moves up if I switch on the heater! when running the gauge is on the second mark after the 90, it does not boil over and I can take the top of the header tank when warmed up. Not really a problem but it worries me slightly!!! its a 2004 expert 1.9d with the wjz engine from a 99 but only had 70.000 on the clock and it does run clean. Any suggestions please?

Learn how the gauge reads in normal use and stop worrying. If the gauge deviates from what it reads now that's when you need to investigate.

I have been trying to come to terms with the temp gauge reading and trying not to worry, but unfortunately thats not me.

There has been one development I notice when the engine is run up to temperature after a 20 mile drive, if I switch the engine off then turn the ignition back on without starting the engine, the gauge reads pretty much bang on the 90, then as soon as I start it the needle moves up a few lines, also it seems to read higher with continuas higher revs. could it be a bad earth or too much voltage getting through to the instrument gauge? I would like to get it sorted as I will be selling it next month and trying to explain this all to a prospective buyer would be difficult and they may well not believe me.
