Stock tranny cooler

My tranny lines go into the bottom of the radiator and then from the bottom of the radiator back to the tranny. I did some searching and saw some pictures of what the 7.3 stock tranny cooler looks like and I donít have that?!?!

The shop that did my tranny put a cooler inline with the radiator cooler but that is all I got.

Did some trucks come without tranny coolers?

My radiator has the trans cooler, but it wasn't used from the factory for some reason. There are plugs with ford part numbers blocking them off.

The 2000 model years didn't come with a cooler in the rad, just a small oil to air cooler, I swapped this one out with a 6.0 OTA cooler and have never seen over 170. As long as you aren't seeing sustained temps over 200 degrees you are okay. If you don't have a aftermarket trans gauge get one!!! The factory units are worthless. The biggest killer to any auto trans is heat so it is very important that you know what the temp is.

Yea gauges are coming soon along with exhaust!

I have an aftermarket cooler now that is about 15 inches wide and 10 inches tall that they put in when i had the tranny rebuilt. I was looking to see how it was interconnected with my stock one since so many people talk about replacing the stock with a 6.duh or v10 cooler. then i thought to my self, WTF are these people replacing, the radiator? then i looked at pictures and noticed that i did not have anything so i am glad the shop put one on with the rebuild. i might add another later just because i want to be extra safe with my expensive rebuild!
