OIL TEMP AND SENSOR LOCATION

#1 Post by rotor_speed » Mon Aug 14, 2017 3:20 am

at the moment I have a remote Derale usa made oil cooler with a second k&n large oil filter my 13b Bridgeport.
with the filter on the 13b location up the top near back of engine I have a oil temp sensor located,so when my saas brand guage reads the temp would that read before or after the oil cooler has done its job reducing the oil temp ?

once engine is warmed up it runs between 90-100 degrees is that ok ?
also I was using penrite hpr 30 20w60 weight oil but thinking of changing back to 20w50 oil,your thoughts please ?

any advice would be great thanks.

the temp is after the oil cooler ..temps are perfect .. 20W -60 is fine unless you live with snow


when the going is hard, don't retard, remember your lubrication
