I don't get why a thin wall is said to run hotter. Can someone explain the physics in that? Also, sleeves are also meant to run hot. That doesn't make sense to me. Sure, heat transfer is reduced, but wouldn't that just cause the surface temperature to be higher, not the rest of the engine?

I'm no professor, but, I figure that a thinner wall transfers heat faster, so the thick cylinder absorbs heat and soaks it through the cast iron in the block, not just the water. Maybe.....?


Clevo's do run warm, especially in the XD/E/F engine bay. Should be OK with a good radiator and fans with a shroud, not sure what's up with Travis' unit. Interested to learn what the engine builder finds.
