Ya, but reinstall the funnel and fill it 3/4, even park at an incline if you can. The area around the temp sender seems to be the most likely to accumulate a pocket of air…which spikes the gauge.
That being said, you may be looking at normal running conditions and wonky 60 temp gauges.
Sounds like you are cool enough based on IR….230 is high but about what I get on IR depending on brand and quality.
Where does the gauge read? 3/4? Touching the red? Mine usually read above half here in Texas
Belts tight? I had a belt that would slip just enough to get warm, but not...
