What is a normal engine temperature while flying around?

I have a 231 and temp runs about 250F. Ambient temp is 90 to 100F. Before shutting down I let it idle until temp falls to 230F or less. But of course as soon as I shut it down temp will spike up to 250 plus.

Is there any difference for the G26?? and how are you measureing those temps?? With a lazer temp guage?? and where do you put the laser?? Side? Head??

I can still hold my finger on the side of the engine with out pulling it off. Though i think its still rich, my needles are on or past the minimums for the 26 settings from Bill. I still need a new Plug but that will be solved this weekend I hope!!!!

AGRAV8,

Thanks for the reply.

Mike "JestRR" Spinner,

I purchased a temp gauge from Heliproz. I placed the pickup about 1 head fin away from the crankcase. Not sure if this is the best place though.
