I am just now seeing this thread so I am a couple days late to the party.
But allow me to kick this dying horse once more;


So obviously there are several factors that play a vital role in all this.
Not the least of which is ambient temp.


But in a side-by-side comparison, all other factors being equal such as off-the-floor-factory original, no aftermarket do-dads...


Ambien temp of lets say 80-90 degrees F, at a set run speed of 3000rpm, either level or on the side stand, WITHOUT added air flow from aux shop fans...which would seize up first?
An air cooled or a water cooled?


Any takers?


Jim.

I'm guessing the air cooled will seize first, the water cooled will be a bit slower as the water is not circulating and contains a volume that must be heated to the seizing point.
