Oil cooling on a DC-6

2 posts in this topic

Hi all!

First thanks for this awesome plane.

After flying a lot of hours often with high oil temperatures I ask myselve how to handle these temperatures.

I am wondering about an oil cooling system with cowl flaps. On some pics on the internet it seems that the DC-6 had

those flaps.

cheers and happy landings

Could you be a little more specific with what is "high oil temperature?" There are cowl flaps but they surround the nacelle and control air flow across the engine.  The oil coolers are in the ducts below the engine in the little pods you see hanging out there, there are no air flow controls for the oil coolers.  The POH describes the oil system beginning on page 59.
