New EOT/ECT Delta Question
Ok so I know there is tons of posts about temp deltas. However, I am concerned about deltas when heavily loaded. During this time of year I routinely am driving on the highway in my truck at about 60mph with about 1000lbs of sand in the bed and a 9' plow on the front. This makes for a very heavy truck and I have seen deltas up to about 18-19* while the engine is under that heavy load for about ten mins. Is this a normal condition? I know you are supposed to check deltas unloaded and they usually seem to hover around 10-14* from what I can recently remember during the summer time.
Any help is appreciated
FYI about to put a coolant filter in....think that will make any improvement?
