This is a standard Gen VI 500 HP carb set up with the standard oil cooler and rear mounted remote oil filter / T-stat housing. I do have 12 qt oil pans.
I added a pair of oil temp gages, but the oil temps are not realistic (340 deg F.). I used an infared temp gage on the oil pan sump and it only read 200. I know it's not exact, but it sure ain't 340 either.
I put the senser in one of the holes along the oil pan rail in front of the oil filter boss on the engine. My guess is there is no flow in that area, and that is why the gage reads high.
Is there another spot for the senser ? There are two 1/8" ports on the oil filter / t-stat block. Any suggestions ?
