My New Coolers, Trans and Oil

My original trans cooler/filter setup was a mess of hardline and rubber,
the thermostat was just hanging there in front of the radiator.
I have a new cooler to take AN fittings and a new cannister filter setup
mounted in front of the rad.
The oil cooler had rubber line as well, thick and butt ugly, I did swap to -8
braided line but it wasīnt up to the task, so I have kitted it out with -10
and a new cooler with the larger AN fittings.
I connected the two coolers with an aluminum plate, and that is held firmly
to the lower part of the rad core.
I used threaded rod to mount the coolers to the supports, I can move them closer to or further from the radiator.
With the thermostats now mounted below the radiator a new airdam was called for so that was taken care of today.
All that is left to do is connect the trans thermostst to the trans with braided hose, eliminating the hardline.
To do that Iīll have to raise the car and drop the rear of the trans to access the fittings.
To finish up the trans will get a cast aluminum, stock capacity, pan and Dexron VI.

Never thought of running an external trans. filter, seems like a good idea. Would you still leave the internal filter? I would think so but not sure

Real nice application as always.
However, when you say "I'm done", it's just
a figure of speech - - - right??? It's hard to
imagine you not tweeking and improving on
that Cammy as long as you are able to.

Very neat install! Bet he's just done with this mod. not the whole car as i've never seen a car that was "done". Unless it was one of those millionaire projects.

Spoke too soon, I have some leak issues pan to trans.
Iīm using a Fel Pro rubber gasket and I donīt think itīs up to cork standards,
deforms too easily before any clamping pressure to seal is reached.
The gasket has undersized bolt holes in it to hold the bolts in place while offering the pan up, even so fluid is coming out around the bolt heads.
At least I wonīt be wasting tomorrow evening.............

Dang-it to heck !
Will you have to have a cork gasket shipped over the pond? If you do and if it would be better to have me get it and mail it to you just let me know.

Malc thanks for the reply,kinda thought the internal filter would stay., as far as a cork gasket you could just make your own if you have access to material and the hole punch. I work in the marine industry and while at sea if no spares on board I just make my own, very common. Oh one more thing it looks like you have a deeper sump pan, I know on mine I had to put a skid plate and it shows usage. went back and read, nowhere did you say gaskets were hard to get.

The pan is just a tad bigger than the stock sheetmetal one, I canīt go to a larger capacity as the car is lowered...scrapey...scrapey...been there.

"If you do and if it would be better to have me get it and mail it to you just let me know."

Thanks for the offer Em.
Cork gaskets, I have a few in stock so Iīm okay there............for awhile.
There is a nice one that came with the filter kit, the screen filter that is.

The poopy part is once the trans is full of fluid and has to be drained that icky stuff gets everywhere and all parts get slippy and slidey, and
there is always loss of fluid.
Dexron VI is bloody expensive too, $25.00 a liter here in Spain.

Loss as in catching it in one container and decanting to another to pour it in the tiddly tube.

I saw it I saw it
Sounds like you have a collector and container problem, Chief.
That stuff is good as a leather softener also.
We used it on our dry saddles and leather goods for years.
