I'm heading for home from a great tour of Alberta

The highlight was a tour of DPS in Calgary (thanks Kevin) and Curtis Halvorson gave me a personal lesson on D'max builds amongst other things

Tomorrow I'll hit the Crowsnest Pass from the steep side

I got on it at the snowshed where it gets steeper and crested the top about 85 mph, oil temp 234*, with a slight drop in oil pressure (down to 380 Kpa from 400 Kpa?) and I don't think the coolant temp moved off the thermostats. The fan never cycled and my max egt was 1195*

I know without the cooler my oil temp would have been 50* higher. The conditions were pretty ideal though; about 50*F at the top and misting rain. I had my heavy slide in camper but no trailer this time.
205? wow my truck has never gone over 190 with a 14k load on it and I live in California with plenty of hills

You will never see 190* oil temp towing 14k I promise you that. Oil coolers are good, but not even my cooler drops my towing temps to that, and I have an extra gallon of capacity. Towing, I saw 225*, and went no higher.

It's connected where isspro instructions recommended it on the oil cooler , I towed Starwagons make- up trailers and generators for the studios in LA in traffic for over 6 years with my truck and it never got that hot, even towing to Vegas. Idk once I get my truck back together I'll give you guys the 411 , Since the motor is out still.

http://www.starwaggons.com/site/inde...nd_enclo/#tabs here's info on the trailer so you know i'm not bsing

But maybe the location that isspro recommended is not a good location?
Input would be good to know once I get the truck back up and running, since I'm putting a twin kit on the truck

......where does isspro say to mount the probe?

the port on the top of the oil cooler (correct spot) will read the highest oil temp we see in the engine. The port on the bottom, shows the oil temp after it goes through the oem cooler. (we dont need to watch this)

Sounds like he's seeing the after oil cooler temp. Wouldn't the best place to read temp be the pan? I guess before cooler would be the same?

Should rewire factory water temp in cluster to read oil temp and adjust hot engine warning alarms via efilive. Is this possible. I just did this on my boat engine. I had oil press. And water temp gauges and swapped them so I was reading water pressure and oil temp. Just makes more sense for the application.
