Thank you for restating the obvious theory of heat exchange but it doesn't answer my original question: on average what volume of cooling air (in cfm for instance) is needed for a particular engine displacement when dealing with glow 4 strokes to keep it within the safe operating temperature? (I'm looking for actual quantifiable hard-and-fast rules not just theory.The stats would obviously be different for 2 and 4 strokes and also different for gas powered engines and different for glow engines because of the different heats generated by each fuel type.) Any actual mechanical engineers out there to shed some more light on this?
