My friend squeezed into a spot on the point, I used the launch and drove around. I was there Saturday till 4. Looking back on it, I think I saw your boat rip passed us a few times, I just didn't put it together.

I'd like to point out my 160 temp on my gauge also courtesy of a Tstat set-up working in Tandom with my 12psi Relief off my pump sending the right amount of water pressure into my block while keeping IMO optimal temp.  Lol Gate valve pshhh.
Have the Holley 800 mechanical its dialed the Hallett is fast for a heavy boat rides great and keeps the ladies wet.
Also found wierd to me Ford 2 wire Alt on here drawing too much power so stuck a resistor on there to solve that issue.  Never woulda know except I got curious with the Fluke one day.
Glad theres some water to play in up here in Norcal though

160*
I swear by the pressure relief for the block pressure
I just like the T stat to control the temp but I run my boat in lakes I probly wouldnt run the T-Stat in the river or sandy locations.
That was an old topic I was just trying to stor the pot a lil but No Bs it worked great on my boat.  I got 160 temp and the Main Key was stopping the excess pressure to my block that kept blowing oil.
Been a few years now on my set-up instead of the Gate valve off the pump (For me I needed to ditch the gate)

Never mind the fact that the front two cylinders only run at Lake temp on the with a 160°F head temp.

What I mean by that is there is nothing preheating the entering water. You think the stat kit is doing something it's not.

Has nothing to do with keeping the headers cool.

Nevermind.

It's moot.

No just saying my T stat is still kicking and all is well running at 160*
My Engine loves the relief and non existence gate valve setup
My boat is still Bass boat Green and has a Damn Ford in it but still with all that bitches still wanna ride in it, get wet and drink Rocky Mountain kool-Aid!!!

Going to state it one more time and then I'll leave it alone.

Your set up,  without exhaust logs or a recirculating pump,  has a gigantic temperature differential from the front two cylinder walls to the front two cylinder combustion chambers.

Running in say 60°F water,  with a 160°F outlet temp,  a 100°F difference.

I never feel silly comfortable with more than a 60°F delta within the block.

I'm OK with the relief valve,  it shouldn't be needed,  but I'm OK with it.  But the 160°F argument is silly.

The only ways I recommend running a thermostat package is an I/O type (absolutely the best) with a block mounted water pump,  or with logs/preheater. This way the water entering the block is much warmer and close to the desired temp.

This reasoning is not made up gobblygoop. It is the same reason you don't put cold water in an overheated car,  cold shock will break stuff.

If you were to put in a colder thermostat,  like a 120°F, it would be much much safer.

You have to realize,  it's OK to have such a huge delta at idle,  because there is virtually zero load,  but yours does it at WFO. Let's say 45hp per hole. The rear cylinders might survive, but the fronts won't. 

Visualize a 60-70° cylinder wall with a 160° cylinder head.  No engine in the world had that design criteria in mind. The water goes all the way through the block before it enters the head at the rear,  same as a Chevy and a Mopar. So technically your still running a stone cold motor,  but with extreme hot spots. That water doesn't move very fast,  and the temperature won't be linear nor homogeneous. Wherever the water is slowest,  it will be the hottest,  may even turn to flash steam  (aka steam pockets). This causes all sorts of carnage.

This is exactly why I set the boats up the way I do,  they can have a cold leaving temp at wide open throttle,  but warm it up at idle to heat the oil and bring things to temp.


Not sure where you and I got started on the pissing match,  but I'm over it.  Let's go boating and have a few beers.

Everybody has their own way of doing stuff, but when it comes to a forum with rookies lurking about,  I try my best to put the information out there, it's up to them to decide of they want to follow free Internet advice.

Have a marvelous day and hope to see you on the water soon.

Your friendly neighborhood GT Jets.
