Hello There,

I have a Slingsby T67C with fixed prop. When the outside air temperature increases above 15°C my oil temperature increases over 100°C into end of green field... Even in horizontal flight 2200 - 2400 rpm still holding on the end of green field. When I start more climb temp. increase into red field! Temperature of cylinders increases too. Cooler is clean, used oil SAE 15W50.

Do you have any ideas about it??

Do you have any experiences of it??

Thank you Marek.

Silly question perhaps, but are the winter fronts installed?

On an air cooled engine, the primary cause of overheating is restricted or improper airflow.  Make sure none of the cooling vents are blocked and that all the internal baffles are properly installed.
