hey guys i was out in the boat today. the temp went up to about 180(it normally is at 160 while cruising) and the oil pressure dropped to about 20 psi. i also started smelling burning oil the engine is a 5.8 liter 351 boss gt 40 heads.

a little history. i blew a head gasket this past fall which i fixed a few weeks ago. it appears that there is a small oil leak near the front of the oil pan too.

so after i smelled and saw the issues i stopped the boat and waited for the temp to cool and then idled back in. temp stayed about 160 and the pressure increased a little. any ideas what would have caused the temp to increase? im guessing the lack of oil pressure could be related to the leak.
