130 oil temperature sender location

Apologies in advance if this is mentioned somewhere.  I searched everywhere on the forum and in the install DVDs and came up with zilch.

 

I understand that the oil pressure sender location is the upper port on the back side of the engine, near the upper pilot side mount.  However, where would a temperature probe go?

  • Coolant temperature prob attaches at the front of the engine. The only other temperature prob is for the gearbox. https://www.facebook.com/Experimental750ES/photos/p.484351955278601...

    Next to the Coolant Temperature Sensor for the ECU and hidden behind the gearbox is the... Coolant Temperature Sensor for the EIS.

  • Edward, The theory is that the oil temp will closely mirror your coolant temp and that is why it is not monitored.
    • It is also indirectly shown by the oil pressure. If oil pressure is good, temperature of the synthetic oil is not very relevant
  • thanks for the info folks

"Early wire looms had this available so the fuel pump could come on with the ECU power. It is for a fuel pump relay. Since the pumps now only draw 1.6A each, and have their own switches, tape off and disregard this wire."

"Just curious, how would the RV-14A fare with the 180hp turbo? I know the plane specs a 210 Lycoming but the reality is that at a higher density altitude in the heat of the day, a IO-390 might only be making 170hp to 180hp at takeoff. "
