One of my Corvairs has an oil temperature gauge. On a long-ish trip at
about 70-75mph on a hot Florida day, it gradually crept up towards 250
degrees. That's seems to me to be getting uncomfortably hot - does
anybody know what a safe operating temperature is for engine oil?
Is it measured in the oil PAN? If so..not to worry... that's the hottest oil...by the time it goes through the pump / Filter and Cooler it down in temp to feed the bearings..
Also when wasyour gauge Calibrated by a "certified lab" ??? GGG just use it as a Reference!
