Thread: Water Temps???

  1. #1
    Hey guys, I was wondering if any of you run a thermostat kit on your boats??? My boat never gets over about 110 degrees and I know i need to build some heat to get optimum performance out of my motor. Thanks for any imput.

    I run a modified automotive 160 deg. thermostat in my BBF/Howard flat. I use a bypass below the thermostat back to the inlet side of the pump and a dump line above the thermostat. Engine runs a consistent 160-170 deg with dry headers. [no pre-heated water]

    Nope.NO thermo.I run an oilcooler that prewarms the water before going into the block.Temps run between 180 idling to 160 standing on it.

    Run the water through the cooler first then the headers to preheat then into the motor

    All the boats I have seen run really low temps, which is a good thing for most and bad for others, depends on what you are doing...I think mine runs around 115-120 when warmed.
