    Oil temperature may be a better measure to use on a cooling system that is not a closed system similar to a car. Do you have the ability to measure oil temp? Back to water temps, you will hear numbers all over the place. Every body is a little different. I believe it boils down to what works for you while still keeping the oil temperature under control and still letting it get hot enough to get rid of the moisture that gathers there.

    X2 on oil temps, my guess is that when you get the water up to 170, the oil is way hotter
