Expected running temp MD11c?
« on: April 08, 2012, 05:39:39 PM »
What is the "normal" temp expected for the MD11c? How long at half throttle should it take to get to it? I had new gauges installed at a recent refit and can not get the temp above 135. It doesn't get there unless running at hull speed with significant squat. Is this correct? Water in water heater gets nice and hot.  Boat in Lake Superior, water temp usually in 50s.

Did you replace the sender along withthe gauge?  Senders must be matched to the gauge, and there is no "standard" or universal sender. 

Even within the same brand of gauge, there are different senders needed for different models.

I don't know. The mechanic did all the work and ordered the gauges. I'll ask him when I go to the boat in a couple weeks. I recall he noticed the low temp but wasn't too concerned about it. Unfortunately, I don't know much about his qualifications except that he was chosen by the marina and the marina is known for good work.
