I realize that the temp gauge/meter reads the cylinder head temp, not the electric motor , but you make a good point for other YH owners.  High ambient temps will still affect the temp reading to a small extent, aside form melting the ice in the bucket quicker. The cylinder and heads are at least partially cooled by the surrounding air.  I think the next time I have the second stage apart, I will try to port the water jacket passages and/or increase the pump capacity/pressure with a better water pump to compensate for my miserable local air temps.
