Standalone trans cooler

I have a 27 Model T hotrod Iím building.
Stock 350 motor and 700r4 trans.
Do you think I would OK running a standalone trans cooler and not using the one in the radiator?

Would I need to run hard lines?

If I do need to use the radiator part of the system could I use this to plumb it?

I always try to use BOTH ... the extra cooler and the one in the bottom of the radiator. I live just up I-26 from you in the Columbia area and it gets HOT here in the summertime. NAPA and others has a 5/16th tubing with double flared ends that can be bent and used very easily. Shown below on my 700R4.



Simple flaring tools and benders can cost less than the shipping costs on some kits.

Thanks for the quick response Deuce.

I guess I was just being lazy and didnít want to run any more hard lines, just finished my brakes.

Are coming to Santee for the show in April?

If so I would love to buy you dinner (LoneStar) and pick your brain for awhile.

NEW INTERIORS,

Did you use the Rad cooler as well or just the Finned cooler?

be very careful of the spin on filter type adapters...... most / many spin filters are directional. Fluid only flows ONE way.

We had a customer come in with his restored 74 Ford 4x4 3/4 ton truck. Big block and C-6 trans. It was a very nice truck.

He had the spin -on filter adapter plumbed in backwards which cut off the flow of the cooler system for the trans.

Sometimes I go.
I used to live in Charleston many years ago and I know a lot of the guys in Street Rods Unlimited. I like their November event in Ladson better ... It is pre 49 only and has more vehicles than the mall event.

And Crosley is right ... as usual
Be careful if you add a extra filter. The ones I use have IN / OUT marked on them ... so you can not make that mistake on the direction of the flow.

This is my second car with this type of cooler - with never a problem on the first. Later this year will be the test for this one but the engine is smaller(302ci vs 355ci) and the cooler is bigger (24" double pass now vs 18" single then) and this one is in a better air flow area under my '31 A roadster's splash shields. I just didn't want more claptrap in my engine compartment - but the rad cooler is there JIC.
