element outlet temp too high...
by: Doug in

could be thermostat - is the radiator getting hot?

Hot oil in = hotter oil out

Is that the only symptom?

Element mixer?
by: Carl

What do you mean by element mixer? Never heard that before?

Element outlet temperature simply means your airend temperature, does the temperature shoot up from cold or does it go up slowly?

Check the oil pipes and make sure they’re clear and oil is getting to them. But first make sure the cooler is clear and clean, make sure the fan is turning, how old is the oil? Is the oil level indicator working correctly (unless its the sight glass type)

Is the thermo valve opening (does the cooler get hot on the oil side when up to temperature)?

Try those things and comment on this thread.

Hope that helps
