    In the olden days, before PVC valves, cars had breather tubes sticking out the bottom of the motor. They vented blowby gases from the crankcase. They also dripped oil, and roads always had darkened areas down the middle of the road. Take a look next time you see some movie footage of a highway from the '50s. That smoke is undoubtedly just your everyday blowby gas.

    Spectacular weather up here right now. Green and lush, too. Mosquitos? Yup, we got plenty. You can have that 100 deg/90% humidity sauna in SE Texas or that dessicated 115 deg pizza oven crap SW of there. I'll take this any day.

    When i look in front of my heat exchanger and radiator there is another smaller cooler that is maybe 4in. x 12in. mounted perpendicular to the other two, i just assumed that was an oil cooler?

    That is the power steering fluid cooler.

    well it appears i still have a ground issue, specifically when the car is running the temperature reads all over the place. When i turn it off but keep it in accessory mode it read about 206-210 after a bit of driving. What would change the ground potentials with the car running versus not?

    Voltage drop from much more current going through those ground connections. Clean the connection at the back of the pass side head.

    You say you have cleaned "it." As I read the "sticky" and other threads on this subject there is more than one ground that can influence this condition. The first is the negative post of the battery; another is the ground strap to the motor; another is the one just under the hood support stick; and then there are those on the back of both heads.

    i will have to check the other grounding points, i was however reading about 40mv between the ground near the hood support and negative battery after i cleaned it and added a star washer. Next thing will be to check the ground to the motor.

    Tried to get at the grounding strap on the block, what a bitch! I decided it would be easier to splice off the ground wire from the oil temp sensor itself and it seems to be working, after some spirited driving the oil temp never went over 230F. It did however jump really quickly when I turned of the car and started it again up to about 300F but within a minute had settled in to around 226-230F

    I still have a certain smell coming from the engine bay after extended drives, but I believe it to be something else separate i will have to figure out.
