Cooing system pressure

Hello everyone i'm just curious on when everyone's opinion is on the proper cooling system pressure to be running. In the past my truck is run about 8 pounds almost all the time lately it's been running 13 to 14 but never any higher. I'm just curious if I could be boiling coolant somewhere at some point, I think the head gaskets are still solid.

Bump and I moved this from the library to the 6.0 section so you can actually get replies now ( common mistake )

Re: Cooing system pressure

Going down the road after cruising at 60 miles an hour for about an hour my temperatures will be a little bit different than most because I don't have a factory oil cooler, it's a separate cooler mounted directly behind the t-case. It's driven off of it thermostatic switch so after driving for an hour oil temp is right about 200, water temperature is 185, pyrometer is 610, boost is 7 pounds. With the oil cooler set up I have oil temperature will stay between 180 and 210.

I would like to post pictures on the set up that I have but I cannot figure out how to do it.

Re: Cooing system pressure

pics from a website is easy just use the postcard looking icon at the top of the dialogue box and add the address

from a computer you will need to go down and click the advanced button then manage attachments and find them on you computer to upload

if on a phone I am not sure how that works

Re: Cooing system pressure

your oil cooler is air to oil but not in the airflow like a radiator ?

Re: Cooing system pressure

what did you use to redirect the oil to the remote cooler ?
van style filter adapter ?

Re: Cooing system pressure

I am using components from the E-series oil filter setup. it works well but if I ever have the cab off I will be refining the setup to use the E-series oil lines. it would really clean it up and decrease oil capacity, right now my dry fill oil capacity is about 19qts.

From a phone or iPad I have to use photobucket. It works perfectly. Took me a year to figure it out but once I did it was simple. Either way subs to this thread.
