Twin stock transmission coolers
This is for my 2000 7.3 Excursion
On my 2003 7.3 F250 I have a 6.0 trans cooler installed, I plan on doing the major hauling with it 10k +, on the Excursion I want to pull a 18ft car trailer to Wisconsin next week, well I havent pulled anything with thing yet. Just got it about a month ago and have been doing all the maintance on it, if it had a fluid it's need changed if it was a filter it was changed.....EVERThing.
Anyways I have another NEW stock 4r100 trans cooler that I am wanting to install on top of the stock one in there and run them in series. If you flip the cooler upside down, you can attach it from the center attachment points, then the connectors will be on the drivers side of the radiator. Then connect them together.
Do you think this will be plenty for the old girl, should double the cooling capasity, or I was thinking about mounting another compact cooler under the frame with a fan on it. I like the idea but the simplicity of double stock coolers can't really be beaten.
Let me know your thoughts, my 2003 trans temps pulling 16k of trailer/cars runs about 170 with Texas average outside temps of 95-100. So 70f is pretty good
