I'm planning to move the oil cooler to the front of the engine, would it be usefull to incorporate a 185F thermostat in the oil lines?

That's 85 Celsius , 100 is what you need, ideally.

That makes sense Tolle, boiling point of water = no white shit in the heads.

I hope so, because Pete and I have the exact same thermostats to install. We want to leave our oil coolers where they are, so installation may be tricky.

Yup, that's the problem. Like an ABS pump finding somewhere for it on the GRiSO is bloody difficult. When I finish rebuilding my original motor I'm going to try and work out exactly where it can be mounted. Since I've rollerised though I'm less concerned as the roller top end seems immune to the over cooling problem.

Thanks Beetle, that sounds assuring enough to me. Temperatures in Holland are low compared to your country so it takes ages for the 8V to warm up. The termostat is not small, I hope you will post your solution with the radiator left in place.

In 10 days we will probably know how Guzzi solved the ABS pump problem (EICMA).

I think you'd be surprised Klaas, where I live it gets bloody cold in winter! -8*Cin the morning is not uncommon! I live right on the top of the Dividing Range and July can be beastly! It can get pretty crisp out in Wagga too but not as cold as here. The difference is that our winters, although cold, also tend to be dry so although mornings are cold as long as the sun is out, which it is more often than not, the temperature will rise quickly and by mid-day it will be in the teens in degrees C. I'm imagining that Holland is more like the UK where it gets cold and wet at the end of July and doesn't warm up again until the end of June the next year!

Did not know that Pete, -8! Holland is indeed like UK in temp but with less rain Very Happy (modest sea climate)
July is our warmest month with an average high temp of 22,8C.

Most people think Oz is all sun and beaches and while there is a lot of that we also have lots and lots of flat, red, nothing's that we dig up and sell to China and very few hills. The Dividing Range runs the length of the eastern seaboard and I live at the top of one of the higher bits. It's only 820 metres above sea level but Australia's highest mainland peak which is only about 100km away is only 2,200m. Wagga where Mark lives is further inland but much lower, only 147m above sea level and is warmer in winter and stinking hot in summer. Where I am we may get a couple of days over 40*C a year. In Wagga they get weeks of that shit!

This couple, Kev and Karen passed through here a couple of years ago on their way to Alaska and I ended up welding some odd broken bits for them. Nice folks, but this rig is pretty over-the-top.

I don't know if it's near your neck of the woods ,Pete, but I spent a few months Volkswagon Vanning it around Australia,

and hung out skiing in Perisher and Thredbo for a week. Didn't think I'd even be seeing snow nevermind skiing on it

when I arrived in Oz! Got offered a job because I was a ski tuner at the time, and debated spending the rest of the season

there. Woke up freezing cold in the van/fridge after an overnight temp. drop, and my girlfriend at the time put the brakes on that

idea, though. No  Had fun while it lasted...

Well, at least you won't have problems getting your tires on temperature sunny
