The only place I can find F and C temps in the same place is the Stapleton
book. I do have a formula for working out some place......
212F or 100C is supposedly optimum but on the high side according to my dyno
230F is 110C
Vizard's book says 'most instances' 210-220F which seems high to me.
Vizard also says 175F 65C is too cold and I'd agree with that
So what is 95C in F ?

The oil can cope with the higher temps and maybe some engines don't lose
power. I only know that my dyno guy who does a lot of Minis and Spridgets
me about the oil temp related power drop. He races a Mini and still wins
even though he is about 68 years old.
What does David Anton at APT say??
I have a 16 row cooler with a thermostat on my road car.

Well then, I'm really glad my gauge doesn't read Celsius.
I was told 200-230F is ideal with Redline synthetic, but I'll check
Stapleton's book. I have the 13 row cooler.
