Hate to repeat / rethread, but trying to make sure my 1966 TR6 is able to make a 4 hour trip this weekend, after I've replaced the contact points (just paranoid)....Contact points set up per manual, starts on first kick, idles, runs, and pulls like new. Using digital laser thermometer going down the highway at 55-60 mph and 3700 rpm, the thermometer is reading 260 degrees F at the cylinder head, and around 300 degrees at the cylinder itself...Am I gonna melt a piston at these temps? Any help much appreciated.....

I know, right? It was tricky at times, but was always on strait away with no traffic in sight...
