    Default Oil Temp Question

    On engines with no oil cooler, what is it that keeps oil from rising above a certain temperature? You figure once oil gets to the same temperature as the parts it can no longer cool (no temperature difference). However, if there's no temperature difference between the oil and the parts then the parts have stopped generating heat, so there's no more heat to remove. But is this even possible?

    Dee dee dee!

    I wasn't thinkin' about that simply cause the water doesn't actually come anywhere close to the bearings (I know it cools the outer walls of the cylinders but that covers the pistons).

    Oil touches the bottom of the water jackets in the crankcase too.

    Water runs throught the cylinder heads too, the oil moves pretty slow and this cools the oil pretty well.

    I have seen oil drainback modified so well that the oil temps go up.
