Well I think I have solved
problem with my Phosaor engine
..... maybe even over solved
it! I installed a small second heat exchanger
in line with the original heat exchanger
. I can now run the engine
at full throttle and and the engine will heat up only to about 155 or 160 degrees F. The Phasor came with a 150 degree F (don't know if they did that because the knew the engine was going to overheat or not). I have heard that a small diesel
engine is most efficient when operated at about 190 degrees F (don't know exactly where I heard that). If in fact that is true, wouldn't I be better off to replace the 150 degree F with a 180(?) degree F thermostat?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
