Oil temperature still high on climb out (220F using 110KIAS climb speed)
and 190F - 195F at cruise.
After resealing the plenum, CHT's are all witnin 20F of highest which is
still #4 at 398F at climb out,
but quickly drops to 230F at cruise.
As stated, my motor was just upgraded by IVO, thanks for the concern, I
will keep an eye on it.
My problem is the brushes, they seem to last only 6 hours. I replaced one
of the brush with a carbon unit taken from a BMW alternator, so far the
wear on it is far less than the "IVO" brush. I keep the rings clean and
oil free . The run out test on the rings were OK.
Do you know exactly which part is failing on these motors ??.
