Just as a data point, in the summer I see 190-200in a climb. I climb at 25/25, 125-130kts. In summer temps, in cruise at 65-75% I see 180-185. In winter I typically have to completely close off the oil cooler.

Mine cycles about 10 degrees in cruise, 185 to 195. I have a theory, but it needs a test, and I can't get a particular plug out of the accessory case...

Default theory?

Sorry a bit slow what is the theory? I haven't made it to the airport in a few days (out of town) but am going to pull the V/T and see if the seat looks OK and them take it from there.
