Transmission cooler

I'm building a '32 Ford Coupe with a 383 sbc and 671 blower.
The tranny is gonna be a Bowtie Overdrive stage 3 w/ a 2800 stall so I want the tranny to stay cool.
Any suggestions on a top flight tranny cooler that would fit the Coupes frame.
Thanks again!!

The issue with a 32 Ford chassis is there is just not a LOT of room under them. I use a B&M cooler.



and a extra oil filter on my 32's.



I run the fluid from the transmission to the extra filter, then into the cooler. Then it goes to the cooler in the radiator ... then back to the transmission.



I like the extra filter ... it adds 1 quart to the capacity and keeps trash out of the system. The extra cooler ... cools the fluid down before it goes to the radiator and then the radiator brings the fluid to it's proper operating temperature. Most transmission folks say 180 to 180 is ideal for most automatics.

Very nice pictures,,thank You,but could You give Me the part # of the B&M cooler if You have it.
B&M's shop is not too far from where I live.
Are Your tranny temps better since You added the cooler?

The cooler is B&M 70273 and the filter setup is B&M 80277.

I always do this before I ever crank the cars ... so I cannot truthfully say how much of a improvement they made. My temps run 180/190 ... which I consider ideal.

Many sizes & styles here >> http://www.transmissioncoolers.us/Me...vc?Screen=SFNT

Long Mfg. owned by Dana Corp. makes most all the Stacked Plate style Coolers, they're rebranded & sold under many names. OEM's and Aftermarket.

This shows the flow pattern of the LPD Self-Regulating coolers>> http://www.bakerprecision.com/trucool.htm cold/thick fluid bypasses the Cooler thru the top 2 rows, thin/hot fluid circulates thru the smaller passages.

B/M advise not to mount coolers inlet/outlet facing down, it causes air pockets.
They are preferably mounted to the side, left or right and the cooler inlet
is always the lower port, exit upper.

One of these:

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/BMM-70266/

Same Coolers as above, without the B&M price increase:

This is an OEM Cadillac cooler, made by Long.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/250903930808...84.m1423.l2649

Same as 1st & 2nd cooler, without special Cad bracket:

Something like this may be a better fit for the Rod frame.

There is NOT much room under a 32 chassis.
You would have to lay the cooler flat ... or have it stick down below the chassis rails.

I do not believe I would have one like that behind your 32 radiator ... lack of room ... because your supercharged engine is going to be at 3 inches longer than than a regualar SBC.



IF I were building a supercharged SBC in a 32 Ford ... I would have to mount the radiator and then set the engine ( with the blower belt setup installed ) in place. Then modify the firewall ... like shown above.
