    normal temperature on the cylinders of the engine?

    im planning to build a temperature sensor each on the cylinders of the engine, to warn the driver of the condition of the cylinder if its overheating or cold, it will have a temperature sensor each cylinder, with a buzzer when the cylinder reached hi temps... so how should be the cylinder temperature be? limits? normal? so i could set it on the chip? thanks

    The thermoswitch closes at 80C. Normal operating temp will depend on water temp, but around 60-70C I think.

    I think 60c =140f to 70c =158f wouldn't be far off depending on water temp. back when I was running my drag car I ran a 180f thermostat. 80c=176f.

    I would think a water cooled setup like a watercraft would have variable temps. 150-170 depending on conditions

    I would think if you we're in 70f water and heating to 170f then you went to 85f water you would be in the heating up range. Would really need to look in the Manuel and see what normal operating temp. Is at the water temp they suggest.

    70f to 85f Isn't that what the sensor would be for? 170tf would be 170F no matter what the intake temp, would it not????Just asking?
