I have a dune buggy with an 215 cu in Olds V-8 all aluminum engine. It is water cooled and I run Amsoil 20-50 synthetic. It currently has an oil cooler, not mounted in the best location so it does not get much air flow at all, if any. I want to disconnect the oil cooler and put a filter back on the engine where the adapter is now. My reasons are these: 1) It doesn't get much air flow anyhow, so is it really doing much good? 2) The plumbing going to it includes, an adapter at the engine, 2 feet of hose to the remote oil filter adapter, 2 feet of hose from there to the cooler, then 5 feet of hose from the cooler back to the engine. Currently, my oil pressure is what I would consider on the low side and I do not know if the gauge is reading before or after the cooler and all that plumbing. In order to eliminate the cooler/remote filter I would have to switch from the FL1A/PH8A size filter to the shorter version on the engine, due to clearance. I may, based on responses here, change over and monitor oil temps at the filter with a temp gun. I have not looked at temps previously. What would be the Max oil temp I should see before I have to worry about it and put the cooler back in line? Any thoughts?
