    Default Oil / Antifreeze Temps?

    I have a Volvo 5.7GSi gas engine with a heat exchanger.
    When the boat is running at my normal cruise speed of20-22knts, the temp is 160.

    I have a remote dual oil filter system. The filter housing has a port for a sensor.
    Out of curiosity I installed a
    water tempgauge and sensor in the empty port.
    Whenmy antifreeze temp is 160 my oil temp at the filter is 200 degrees.

    Is this a normal oil temp?

    Any info on the relationship of the antifreeze and oil tempsand the possible engine problems this may indicate is appreciated.

    yes you want your oil temp higher. This will cook out any moisture in the oil from condensation etc. Your well in the green with those oil temps.
