The infrared gun may not read correctly -- different texture and color surfaces will affect the accuracy, a contact thermometer would be best. The thermostat should not open until 90c (195f) -- some heat transfer thru thermo siphon will happen in the upper hose, so it may seem to be passing coolant when it is not.

For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.
