Ha! I want to agree with you. Especially with the desire for everything to be so hot for epa ratings.
Ect thermostat cracking at 194 but not fully open into 212 and the fans don’t even start turning until 221°... and get to 50% speed at 228°
Trans has a thermostat but I think it’s a 175-180° I can’t confirm it. I’m still trying to find out. I’ve heard it’s as high as 210°...
had same question years ago, depends Where you measure temp, inlet or outlet of cooler, 200 is probably right on Outlet, means oil going In is Much hotter than 200, and 200 oil temp going into a 225 temp motor shouldn't be a problem, DONT QUOTE ME ON THISmy temp switch was for water, 190 , out of radiator, probably goes in at 210 -20
let me preface with: I have been getting a few places (smart people) tell me to run a 165° fan switch.
I haven’t gotten any word on a suggested thermostat bypass temperature.
anyways. My plan for plumbing is as follows:
Exit the factory oil filter bracket, to a thermostat bypass, then to a one way check valve, then to bed, through a 165° temp fan trigger, into the bottom of a single pass cooler, exit the top of the cooler, back to the thermostat bypass and then enter the block in the factory return port.
the plumbing is going to be soft braid wrapped in a heat shield when it exits the engine, then when it exits the thermostat bypass it will use aluminum hardline. Then soft line, to a bulkhead fitting at the bed, then soft line to the cooler. (Then reverse)
I was originally going to do a 200° thermostat bypass, but I have a feeling I’m going to be going down to the 165° temp...
Ok as to your point to fan therm switch location? Are you saying mount it after the cooler... near the thermostat bypass? Or anywhere after the cooler?
for some reason I had it in my mind to mount before the cooler. No idea why really...
