I believe that the oil temp is the cause of the overheating problems with the Broncos. I will be getting a cooler.
I believe you have concern over nothing...coolant runs 180 to 210 in most engines oil temp normally runs 230 to 300...all the diesels I work on have oil coolers & do you know what they All use to cool the oil ?...coolant running at 200 degrees...they spend thousands of dollars to integrate these in all diesels...so your 250 degrees is actually low.
