Winter flying & oil temperatures in AEIO-360


Peter, 170 is not bad.  You would like to see about 180-185 if you can. The reason for this temp is that the oil in the pan is 30 to 40 degress hotter than the oil where your temp probe is.  200-215 is too hot. This can be confirmed in any Lycoming handbook.  Terry Burch( Zlin 50LA)
