Tranny cooler Maintenence

(1/1)

Jake:
Tranny Coller Maintenence?? Huh? well, kinda sorta......
turns out the changes in the  plumbing require some splicing and moving around... The splicing is usually accomplished by using some high pressure hydraulic hose, and the ever present screw type hose clamps.....
There's the problem, as the screws back off, the rubber 'sets' under compression, and the whole shooting works vibrates and gets loose / leaks........My Cooler, added about 13 months ago suddenly gave the under carriage a bath of ATF...
Nasty , really nasty. I ended up tightening a lotta clamps, almost all were loose!
My recommendation; Tighten as necessary at least once every 6  months to be sure.........

Where is your tranny cooler located? Yes hard pipe is better as long as it is mounted right any chaffing will cause tubing to wear and fail having the same problem as :jake: but it would take along time for that to happen. Oh also no kinks in the bends.

I purchased two pieces of aluminum angle.  Trimmed the ends and mounted the cooler right in front of the radiator!!!  :-X


Here is a shot of it after a little snow in CT!!
