ECT

I did the coolant flush with restore and lots of distilled water installed a new thermostat and added ELC replaced the oil cooler and deleted the egr cooler also did the STC fitting while I was in there and also ended up replacing the radiator it started leaking around the bottom tank not sure if the radiator problem was caused by the coolant flush but its possible I guess, my question is that before I did the work my ECT was around 185/190 while cruising now it is at 195/200 as is the EOT I thought after all that work temps would actually be lower?

Ya something isnt right there, cruising ECT should be about 190. Why did you end up replacing the radiator?

You are good to go. The thermostat starts opening at 192* and is fully open at 219*. Your diesel is perfectly happy and operates more efficiently at 200* than it does at 185*.

That is why you can get 202* thermostats for the 7.3. Someone should make them for the 6.0.

My 6.0 runs the same temps with a remote BPD oil cooler. Like Bob Marley says, " don't worry, be happy".
