Default Gates thermostat.. not much heat

Has anyone had any problems with Gates thermostats ? I replaced my radiator the fall. I also replaced the radiator cap ,and thermostat, while I was in there. I don't get anywhere near as much heater heat as I use to. Up until this fall, I was still using the original thermostat that was in the car when I bought it 2002.

did you thoroughly bleed the air out of the system when you replaced everything?

Yes I did. Used a clear hose, so I could watch for air bubbles. Since I did the work in the fall. My temp gauge is one line below center/ most of the time. It use to be at center.
