Re: Hotter Oil
I don't understand the relationship, but since it is winter I blocked the outlet side of both oil coolers with 0.010" aluminum flashing.
Dimensions of each piece were about 5.5x9.75" but make a pattern from thin cardboard to find your size.
The Al pieces were very flexible, that made this job easy, but needed tape to hold them against the coolers.
Of course, there was no high temp. tape around which seemed like a problem until I later realized that it will let some air flow when hot, so now it is a feature!
After a slow 20 minute drive, the entrance side of the right cooler was about 120-140F and the left was 85-110F; 60F outside air and 185F on gauge. (No baseline data).
Does the oil flow from right to left?
