All this taulk about cooling and solid fan vs. other fan setup has got me thinking. Check the picture. I got my aux water temp tapped off of the little water line on the top side of the thermostat housing going to the turbo. See top arrow. I was wondering if I am correct in assuming that when I read water temp at the aux water temp indicator, that that means that the thermostat has opened? And the convers, it I don't get any temp off of this, that the thermostat has not opened? If this is correct, then that would mean that the thermostat basically has stayed shut most of the winter, except when the temps got around freezing. Is this a problem with keeping the turbo shaft cooled? Or cause any other problems? thanks.
