Can anybody tell me the idle operating temp for an F2 engine.
Searched the forms but can nail it down.

Just put an electric fan in yesterday and I need to know the idle temp to run this motor at.

It is running at 185' right now before the fan kicks in.
Seems abit warmer than with the stock fan.

It get hot down here and I am trying out this electric set-up.
I have a bypass switch in the cab for extra protection.
Have over heated a number of times in the past andfigured this might help me out.

Thanks for any help on the temp ?

Steve,
The operating temp of any engine should be the thermostat temp.
Early 2F stat is 82C, switching up to 88C after about 1980.

Thanks for the info Jim.
I am running a temp. sensor for the fan that will kick in at 85'c
Seems to be working fine.
Just wanted to be sure I was in the proper temp area.

Thanks again & Cheers
Steve
