Has anyone installed an oil temp gauge on their T? I'm trying to find out what the highest temp these transmissions routinely can get up to. I see posts about water temp, but no oil temp.

After the emails I can see I didn't get my question across in a clear manner. This is not a question about oil. I am curious to see if anyone can tell me what temperature the metal inside the engine is, mainly the transmission parts. Nothing to do with oil, viscosity, color, or flavor! :-)

There's an engine diagram that shows just that floating around somewhere. I had a copy on my old computer but that's gone. It could be in one of the books. My memory of the chart is not all that good but I seem to recall the pan oil temp was around 200. But the chart didn't make clear if the temperatures were over ambient or just a reading.

Oil temperature measured on an outside 1/2inch oil line will eventually reach about 10 deg below the watter temp measured at the watter outlet. 2-3 hrs. of hard driving. Oil temperature also changes with viscosity of oil. I have seen 10degree difrence by viscosity.

I have a temperature sender mounted in the bottom of the transmission. On a hot summer day running on interstate type highway with relatively flat surface at speeds around 50 MPH (plus-minus) for a distance of 5 to 7 miles, the gauge indicates on the high side approximately 195-198 degrees. Easy running (on regular low traffic roads) around 35-45MPH the temperature gauge indicates in the 180 range. I use a water pump and thermostat. It is amazing how fast the temperature drops after the ignition is turned off, lot of metal to radiate the heat

Great answers! Any of you sit in parades on 100 days with the radiator boiling over? I'm looking for the worst case core engine temp's here. I'll tell you why later.

I need some more help on this project. I need to know what the load force is between the triple gears and the drum gears. Is anyone on here smart enough to figure it out? I'm certainly not!
