remote oil and trans cooler ideas

Hello All,

I have been laying under my cj thinking of ways to mount external engine oil and trans cooler. I have a 304 soon to be a 360 or 401 and I already have an AC condenser, and the the transmission running through through the radiator. Any more is asking a lot from that small space. I Run 90% of the time in the Mohave desert and it is already over 100 this year and will be there until the end of september.

Get a remote oil filter, run the return line though a cooler, then back to the motor. It will have all the lines and connections needed.

A small cooler for your power steering would be good also.

I am running a remote trans cooler with a fan inline with the cooler in the radiator and mounted my cooler on a bracket that I built under the batter tray. It sits at an angle to clear everything. I have been using it for about 5 years now and have a trans temperature gauge and never use the fan. Crummy picture, but it may help with the explanation.

I was thinking about that area, maybe oil on one side and trans on the other.

It has a positive affect in that location??? I was thinking maybe the exhaust ambient temp would too great?

Thanks for the pic.

I too was concerned about the air flow, which is why I went with the cooler mounted fan and wired it so that it would blow down, away from the battery and out of the engine compartment, but I have never needed it. Now that I am running Genright front fenders there is a conveniently placed vent near the cooler!

Have you seen a improvement in cooling of your trans by running that way?
