Hey there Bill, SuperStroke,
On the site posted on the last Tranny thread, www.transmissioncenter.com or what ever it was, they had Aux Coolers from $55 to $75 Hayden and Derale.
You must have given it some thought.. It looks to me these would be good to put in Series with the Stock one we have... What do you think? And Location?...

Thanks in advance, Lone Ranger in Oz... :burnout LOVIN MY 7.3 PSD

ranger, aldo compare the deminsions of this monster (the one on top) to the one you have now.those are what the 6.0/torque shift have and the one on the bottom is what the V10's have. i got the cooler for free so there wasn't much to think about. the only problem with the one i have is it use's 1/2" line where as the stock unit use's 3/8" i think. from the picture it looks like the come with some sort of adater mine didn't so a little adaptation and it'll bolt right in. also you can pick those 6.0 coolers up on ebay for cheap. even the V10 cooler is a step up from the stock cooler.

Thank you for that SuperStroke... You are talking about replacing the original, in the original location... I was thinking about of an inexpensive one in series. Like in one out and in the other, some additional other location.... A lot cheaper and easier, if you can come up with the location... Ha!

Here out on the Frontier, we are envious of you guys there living right in the middle of the toy store! Everything for us is Ocean Freight or an arm and a leg for air mail. And returns and core charges? Sends you right over the top... Oh well, good with the bad...

Ranger

i am with the ranger on cost issue. my wife would get her panties in such a bunch over the $$425 she would have a permathong. It would take my truck with a chip in performance mode to even pull on the wedgie!

I was thinking of the same in series and was hoping someone had already did the hard work for me.

Aldo,
I have a 45 degree raking down to the rear, crash cage sort of a thing under the radiator, don't know if it is on your U.S. Fords? You can't really see it much but on my garage picture it is the shadow under the bull bar, just under the winch and rakes back down at about the 45 deg. If you have it, I was thinking of spacing it down a little and putting one under that crash ramp cage sort of grill. ???? Ranger in Australia

FREE now thats a price within my budget .....Truck is going back to the stealer today but before it makes it there i am going to stop at a fellow v8sho.com members tranny shop for a prediagnosis. Hopefully he will have a suggestion where i can mount it. As far as the 45 angle crash gizmo i have not even really looked under the thing but it sounds like some kind of splash gaurd ....wombat wacker?
I will keep you a breast of what happens.. look on ebay ranger better yet what about a junkyard and just clean it out real well.
