Define operating temperature, and how did you measure it?
This is where I get the most grief, trying to get accurate data! When I was
debugging the cooling on my Mazda 13B powered boat, I got all kinds of 'advise'
from others who tried, like, they couldn't get an oil cooler that worked very
well, etc.. Adding a decent instrument helps a lot. I bought a Fluke two channel
digital thermometer and a pair of Type K thermocouples, and that answered a LOT
of questions. Meaning, often, factory gages aren't worth SQUAT! Turned out my
oil cooler setup worked fine, and a couple of guys who duplicated said it never
worked right AT ALL, until I lent them this thing, and gee, it's amazing what
you learn when you measure stuff accurately!
So, I ask, how do you know it was overcooled?
Why most of us should measure "success" in " HOW LONG [ miles] DID IT LAST" ??
