I replaced the exhaust system in my Classic 12. It improved the oil overheating problem significantly. This was a hot summer and I never had a yellow indicator for oil temp. Last year before the change I always had a yellow indicator shortly after takeoff n warm weather.

And as a bonus I now have zero carbon monoxide indications. So the exhaust leaks in the old system are gone.

I canít win! No insulation and the engine overheats. Insulate and it accelerates exhaust failure.

I had an exhaust line break off a Continental O-200A on my first home built. I ended up with some charred wood at the edge of my firewall. That plane was always an adventure.
