Oil Temps?

I am helping a buddy install an oil cooler on his machine. I was wondering what the operating temps for the Teryx was on the oil? I was going to look into a thermo. switch to signal on/off based on the oil temp. What would be a good on temp. and a good off temp?

Where did you buy the oil cooler kit and what all is your set up going to include, where are you mounting the cooler, sorry about all the questions but I am going big bore and thinking of doing the oil cooler I have always been a big fan of cooling any fluids.

We are piecing a kit together. Probably going to use a trans/oil cooler from Jegs or Summit, some nice AN fittings and Blue aeromitve hose, the adapter i found is only $36. He wants to mount it up front in the empty space behind the radiator under the hood. The cooler will have the fan attached as a combo. Im looking at an adjustable temperate control for the fans by Derale. You can adjust what temp it comes on at and will automatically turn off when the temp drops 10 degrees. The Derale unit also has a bypass to run the fan at ALL temps.

I thought some one would have answered you by now. Don't know exact temps, but my tractor with a cat engine has a oil cooler on it & it is cooled with antifreeze. So the coolant would warm up oil at first, then cool oil off to no less than 190 degrees. Hope that helps a little, crow
