An hour of calculating later and the magical student help stuff I was atleast able to get the number to do a 180 and be positive but it was still 1/4 what I was refunded last year Le sigh >.<

I usually run the external cooler into the radiator heat exchanger, helps stabilize temperatures, and the external drops it low enough that it wont add heat to the cooling system, but the factory cooling system keeps it at operating temp, you dont want your trans fluid too cool either.

I have a 650HP Camaro that has 2 External coolers ((8 x 12") and then runs into the radiator heat exchanger than back into the trans..

The owner of the shop that built my Monster TH400 said to do it that way or he wouldnt warranty it!

It was a productive afternoon afterall. Mike stopped by to lend a hand with Justins axle, and Jason came by just in time to chew the fat and talk shop. Good times.

Here's what we did on Justins D44 between talking shop and chewing the fat.

I can't decide if I want to delete the internal cooler or not. it seems like a good idea, in order to get the radiator to run cooler. I will probably hook up the external cooler on the aux fan side so that it is running all the time, I just need to get a relay wired in, etc. not sure how to do that yet, but I'll figure it out.

I am not worried about running too cool, my jeep runs damn hot as it is.

I am going to do a complete cooling system overhaul before the summer, new rad, new thermostat, new waterpump, new hoses, flush the block, etc...

You mean a cooler with a fan as one unit? picture?


The radiator will by just about at engine temp of appx 195, so there is not a lot of temperture differental between that and the transmission for cooling. Personally I would bypass the internal cooler and add one or two externals. Add a gauge also,

I added this kit for the filter, the extra fluid and the sending unit.

I have an external cooler on mine mounted just behind the grille and in front of the mechanical fan so air is always moving by it. No temp gauge though. I'm happy with it.

Completely stock, and keeping it that way...

I plan on adding a gauge. deleting the internal cooler would make things easier, not having to route new hoses and all.

interesting, I'm not sure if I need the filter kit, my trans has an internal filter. although the extra fluid would be nice.

I may bring the jeep over to you soon so we can figure it out

the one I grabbed had a fan in front of it, so I plan on wiring that in to run all the time and then putting it on the aux fan side so that there is always air moving on both sides of the rad... the aux fan will just be extra air.

I got $250 back from Federal last year, and owe to state. This year, I'm getting nearly 4 times back from federal, but I owe state $100.

Still pretty damn good in my book though.

Need some help! I have my Quadriplegic (like Christopher Reeves so someone drives him around in the jeep) buddys 1966 CJ5 on my lift at my house & found T18 transfercase has handful of broken gears in bottom. I'm trying to get it fixed for him so he can go to TDS. Anyone have a good one sitting around they want to sell or is good at rebuilding one? Any help is much appreciated.

unnoficial word is that Gerald lee/John currie won the modified class this morning.... running 35"s in a 37" class

edit: story's keep changing, the last updated I got was that the savvy rig won the stock class and the overall win for the "smittybuilt everyman challenge" and PSC won the modified class and got second overall.

Call up:
Boarder Parts

(619) 461-0171

They most likely have any part you need on hand, and could guide you on a rebuild. Then again I am sure a few google searches can give you a nice few pictures to help rebuilding it.
