    safe operating temps

    I always let my engines warm up before I put a load on them. here in northern we get alot of 50 degree temps in the spring and fall, alot of times my temps are only in the 215-230 range is this still a safe running temp?

    Safe temp range is anywhere between 210-260.... From there,,, smoke trails combined with performance... :cool;

    Anything over 180 will get you good longevity. Remember, if it is cool outside you should always richen your high speed needle a hair and tune the engine back to max performance from that point.....that way you always know it's not too lean.

    As it gets warmer, depending on the fuel you use, you may have to lean your LS a tad to keep that snap. Then in the Fall richen it back a tad. usually it only needs about 5-10 degree turns richer or leaner once it is set.
