cooling issues

I think it might be time to swap the low temperature thermostat out of the loop...



and more worryingly;



even with a bit more stress on the engine it doesn't get a lot hotter on the water - but the oil comes up, but imo not far enough.

That, or some duct tape!

That way, you can always pull off the tape if it starts to run hot.

Re: cooling issues

or clamp the main hose a bit. It's pretty flexible. That'll slow the flow a bit. Not sure its as wise as the above suggestions though lol

Re: cooling issues

I removed my low-temp one last october as it was staying far too cold.

Couldn't be bothered to put it back in for the summer though.
