Has anybody heard of the oil side of an oil cooler plugging off?

I am wondering if the oil side of an oil cooler can become plugged over time, causing reduced oil flow to the hpop?

It is unlikely that a blocked oil cooler will restrict oil to the HPOP. There is an oil cooler bypass valve which is located in the oil filter housing which will open should such an event occur. Of course, the oil would not be cooled and oil temperatures would climb.

Oil changes would have to be seriously neglected for this to become possible and I would expect all of the fuel injectors to have quit working long before this happened.

Thanks, that will keep me from putting in a new oil cooler, my eot and ect are right where they need to be. No need to waste time and money doing something not needed.

If your temps are where they should be, both sides should be working well.

I was having problems building high pressure with my new hpop on looney. I talked to Vivian and she is upping the oil pressure, I am not the first one with the problem but there are a few that she has had to do it for. She keeps it lower to keep the smoke down.
