temp gauge wrong? help!

Hi guys, my 94' yj 2.5 temp gauge reads right at 250 degrees and I have flushed system, new thermostat and coolant with the right mix. I'm curious if the gauge could just be off because at startup when its cold out the gauge reads 125 but returns to lowest temp on scale when off.

I think the sensor is ok because I tried one out of my buddys yj. Is it possible that the spring in the gauge could be worn or adjustable.
