If the fluid gets over 240 the properties of the oil start failing. A trans can normally run north of the engine temp a little bit, say 230 but over 240 starts concerns.

You will know if it hits 260 cause it will start puking fluid out.

That B&M cooler I told you about on the other thread has a 170 deg thermostat on it, so the fan unit kicks on after 170. It really helps, normal, no tow operation is between 120 - 150 deg. And depending on where you're going with the boat, most of the time somewhere around 150 - 180 but I have had times where it's 200 degrees too (35 mph stop and goes. Break out the jumper for the fan unit and let it run!).
