EOT while towing
towing the boat down hwy 95, i noticed my eot seemed pretty high. the boat is around 9k. ouside air temp between 75-80*, mostly flat highway
the first part of the trip was seeing around 200-210 water temp, and around 225-230 eot,
later on, running between 70-75 mph, started noticing my EOT was getting up towards 240. Saw it is high as 242.
most of the time i was seeing around 24-26 degree difference between eot and ect.
had the system switched to cat elc last year when i had my headgaskets done. I bought restore and restore + for the shop to use for flushing. i assume they did a complete flush.
I have also been running a coolant filter and have noticed a decent amount of gunk in it when I change it.
Is my oil cooler clogged? when not towing, I was seeing only 5-8 * difference between EOT and ECT
Btw, my egr is deleted.. Oil cooler has about 20k on it.
