Installing oil cooler SBC - Help needed

Hey guys,

I am looking into installing an air oil cooler into my 350..
I have an abundance of room in my engine bay for mounting everything.
the only things I seem to be having trouble with is ordering the sandwich plate? does anyone know what physical sizes and thread sizes a sbc uses?

also another note, am I to run a thermostat or temp sensor for the oil cooler? or is the oil free flowing through the cooler at all times?

Thanks!

My adapter.


My thermostat far side is oil cooler, nearer is trans.


The oil cooler is B/M, size to fit your available space.


The lines are AN -8.
