Actual temp numbers will vary from engine model to engine model and how hard you push it (Idle vs WOT).
I used to run MAN D0836 engines that ran steadily at 118C oil temp
. Engine oil temp alarm fired off at close to 128C. Exhaust temp was in the 500/600C area.
Get to know your engine. Make a note (mental/paper/log book/etc) of what is normal temp so you know what to compare to. Also look for local hostspots as captrigney
