CarbIce Posted February 16, 2004 Report Share Posted February 16, 2004 Just a quick question regarding winter operations on a PA-28. We bought a 62 Cherokee in 2000, and at the time we installed an oil cooler baffle during the colder winter months. Our mechanic suggested we change the old oil screen system to a filter which included a verna-therm (sp?) so we don't use the oil cooler baffle anymore and the oil temp runs fine even at -25C (after a real long pre-heat). Another local owner suggested we should really use a cylinder baffle as well in the winter to keep the cold air blast off the front 2 jugs. Our POH says nothing at all about baffles for winter ops... just wondering if anyone knows if these are required. Thanks..... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
