IR thermometer fun

I have a blast pointing mine at things. I want to know what all you guys have monitored and the temps you got, no matter how crazy. I'll have to post some more pics of the things I have done later. I did this today when I got tired of being frozen with the 30mph gusts and wanted to experience a desert, hour and half of full blast heat.. The passenger seat was even 105F :lmao: Needless to say, I was shirtless and sweating so at least I reached my goal lol.

It is great way to check those critical temps on the VP44. That is the Achilles heal of our ISB's. I am going to check mine when summer comes and the hot weather hits. http://forum.mopar1973man.com/showthread.php/1266-New-VP44-the-results-are-in%21 You can use it for lots of other things too, rear differential, transmission temp, fuel temp, and alot of other things that may not have a gauge.

Your post is what made me start this one since you talked about the IR doing all that. I am wanting to see all the weird things you have used it on :lol: I used it on the grid heater elements and they max out at 500F and hold rock solid there.

I thought it was ironic that you posted this thread. But now that you know that temps. You have a guideline to use if you have any problems in the future.

Well I go through a lot of days just shooting it at things seeing what temps they are, just wondered what other things people had been finding the temps of.

It was nearly -20 this morning so I was going to play a bit with some pics but my Raytec will not read below 0.:cry:

I have a Raytec as well, and it will read negative temps, bought like 10 years ago when they first came out, so don't ask the model, I forgot and don't care. Shop is 300 feet away, and I am not running down to check. :nono:
