6.0 Cooler question

For my brother's truck that he just bought off of my pap, I had him order a 6.0 cooler since its automatic. I went to help him put it on and noticed that his trans lines go into the radiator. I thought only the zf6's used the radiator as a cooler? Should we still use the 6.0 cooler or will the radiator suffice for cooling?

I dont have guages on the truck yet so I dont know what the temps have been running.

Also where is the best place to put the probe for the trans temp?

this will show you where to hook up your transmission gauge (and any other gauge) As far as the trans cooler, I think your right about only the manual trannies running through the radiator, but I could be wrong...

I think so too. We've had about ten of these trucks since 99 and only the standards had the cooler set up that way that's why I'm corn fused. Lol

When I first got my truck, the fluid lines ran through the bottom of the radiator, then onto the stock cooler. My front seal started leaking and I took it to the shop. While he was in there replacing the seal, he also rerouted the lines directly to the stock cooler. He put some fittings on the radiator connections and filled them with what looks like RTV.

When I swapped out my stock cooler for the 6.0L cooler, I left it the way he put it.

I'm not totally sure if it has a separate cooler actually. I'll have to look at it again. I wanna put the gauges on and see what it actually runs at so I can have a baseline. I already have the cooler so that will get put on regardless.

some trucks, especially northern trucks, ran thru radiator and then to stock cooler. this is to warm the oil in the winter. i ran mine directly to the cooler as it does not get that cold here. i noticed a 40-60 degree drop after the install
