Can you run a sled to cool?

I bought a ultra tunnel to long track a xlt.I used the extra coolers underneath It does not get as hot as before.
You can hold your hand on the engine before you could not.I am running a piped xlt with 38mil carbs 136 track. Does anyone know if this will hurt? It takes a long time to warm up.Is there anyway to install thermostat? Any help or input would be great.Vinman

Re: Can you run a sled to cool?

My friend has three L/C sleds and they all run cool. Even when it's like -10*C you can hold your hand on the motor. Whenever his sleds do get to hot to put your hand on he says there's something wrong. And there usually is something wrong, like an airlock or the head gasket blows.

Re: Can you run a sled to cool?

I know that they do run fairly cool, but I would be a bit concerned running it too cool. My last 5 sleds have been L/C and they all heat up enough that you couldn't hold your hand on the motor very long. I'm not real sure where it should be, but these have been on completely stock sleds, so I would assume the manufacturer would have it set right, hope it helps
