I thought no my oil temps are around 160 but I replaced my capillary temp gauge and the current one only show a trend much like a 150 Cessna gauge. The needle started showing a hotter temp so I used the trend of oil temp and mag check and decided to change things until they worked as I like.
I take the temps from the back of the oil screen where the capillary bulb screws into it.
No filter. I change the oil every 25 hours. I do have an oil cooler.
Yeah the cowl is going to be warm after 19 minutes especially due to summer temps.
For the go cart racing etc there is a tape on temp strip that will show you what the highest temp reached. Might be good for trouble shooting. And checking your oil gauge.

Doh! I forgot to mention the oil temp is once again back to normal!
Yes Bruce .......which is what for yours please, and where do you take your oil temp from ? Rear plate ? Do you have the Spin on filter mod, does it have cooling fins or a separate cooler,

Stupid question = Is your cowling too hot to touch after you have been taxiing for 10 minutes ?
