    [musketeermail] oil cooler ruptured

    Additional info:

    Outside temp was near 60deg....
    Again, I flew it for 35 minutes first, so oil was plenty warm.

    '78 Sundowner
    A4K 0360
    720 SFRM (will have to check logs to see if any oil cooler issues
    previously)

    Thanks again.

    [musketeermail] oil cooler ruptured

    Have you ever had the cooler serviced? They do clog up over time (30 years)
    and that might have contributed to the problem.
