If it is the correct thermostat, it is bad, delayed opening. Do you know what temp the new thermostat was?

Its 192° i put a new one in an took it out an reused old one that i knew was good

Then you may want to verify the reading by installing a manual temp gauge temporarily just to compare the readings, it is possible that the sender or gauge is reading incorrectly.

How often do temp gauge go bad? Car has 86000 mi

Not often, but they do go bad on occasion, especially if there has been a voltage problem in the past,
