Oil

* 40 psi pressure running is about right.
* Oil Temperature should be around
   85C minimum (185F) and 105C
   maximum (221F)

Coolant

* Run a radiator cap with the highest
   pressure rating that the radiator will
   stand.  19-21lbs is a good range.
* Coolant temperatures should be
   around 85C minimum (185F) and
   100C  maximum (212F).
