[Vwdiesel] coolant temperatures

My 91 NA Jetta, with proper thermostat, and everything running right, 
has a coolant temp of about 86 or 87C, and oil temp (20W50 in summer)
of about 245 lower power settings to 258F highway cruise.  Running the
(still R12) AC drops the coolant temps to as low as 84C.  Coolant temps
can be cooler, if just low power city driving, however, that is not 
the normal driving modality for me.

I don't have a Westy, but thought I would share these data points.
Good luck sorting it out.
