Pic is very small, but I think I see a lot of copper ? Copper oil cooler maybe ?

Interesting TBN reading. Did you add any oil during usage?

I agree that copper looks a bit high.

Normal behavior in BBC 454's. It goes up and down over the miles. The oil cooler is huge in these RV's (same size as radiator).
