Towing with 727

I'm going to be pick up and delivery for our mower repair, also pulling my 14' boat. Would it be worth it to buy a deep pan and a tranny oil cooler?

How much weight are you towing on a regular basis? Does it have the standard cooler in the rad? If you are towing regularly the deep pan and aux cooler are good ideas. Put the aux cooler in the return line from the rad cooler.

Yep it's a small 3994 lb towing capacity utility trailer, my boat is a 14' aluminum don't think I have to worry about towing that! So I think I will put a cooler on front, yes it's still going threw the rad

I think the radiatior mounted trans cooler would be the most help. Keep in mind that deep pan doesn't really do much but hold more fluid. Sure, it takes longer to heat up, but it doesn't really SHED heat much better than a standard pan. Will it hurt? Certainly not, but for the money I think you'll get better cooling function from a cooler.

I intend to live forever. So far, so good.

Most deep pans are aluminum and finned, which means they promote better heat transfer than the standard stamped steel pan.

That's what I was looking at!

I was going to install a Mopar deep pan on my 42RE but it wouldn't clear the exhaust. The OE pan on this trans is pretty deep to start with. I put a 7"x11"x3/4" B&M Supercooler in the return line back to the trans from the rad cooler. Most aftermarket trans cooler manufacturers recommend that it is installed this way. I used brackets to space the cooler away from the AC condenser to allow more air circulation. I measured some temps with an IR heat gun and it seems to run at least 30 degrees cooler than it did without the cooler. Make sure to check your clamps and lines for leaks a few times after the install. And also, the inlet/outlet of the aux cooler should face either down, or to one side or the other, not up because that can cause an airlock in the cooler. B&M notes this in the instructions.
