Here's Jeg's offering:
http://www.jegs.com/i/Derale/259/157...32#moreDetails
The price is the same but the pipe adapters are included w/free shipping.

I am cheap enough to make a simple loop of copper tubing and hide it anywhere, like behind the front bumper or in a wheel well. - Dave

I saw that one but I was not sure of the thickness. I also thought of a wheel well location but there is so much debris on the roads out here I would be afraid of something kicking up. I am not good with copper but I am ok with flares and pipe.

A home made copper 'radiator' is ok to use IF it doesn't move. I have put 1,500-PSI through small diameter copper on nitrogen tanks with great success. You can flare it or use IFF (inverted flare fittings). I prefer to flare 3/8" copper. Along with great heat transfer and wonderful flexibility, another reason I like copper is that I can solder it or solder copper wires to it. Steel also solders well to copper if you get the heat up there (great for a rock shield).

Air conditioning guys coil copper between vibrating parts but hoses work as well. Make sure your hose is made for oil and certified for 100 PSI. Long (or coiled) steel lines vibrate well without breaking, like your transmission lines. - Dave

I finished the oil cooler today and made a new post at:
http://www.squarebirds.org/vbulletin...ad.php?p=94326

I am going to drain the Prestone flush I put in today early tomorrow morning and then install the new hoses, thermostat, coolant and Water Wetter. I hope all of the changes done in this thread will help others!

Changed to the new thermostat today. Found out about the KULTULZ string trick. Very cool. Installed my new hoses, coolant mix and Water Wetter. No leaks so I will run it this week and see how it does. Temperatures are supposed to be in the mid-90s all week. Ugh.

How did your oil cooler work out last week?

It installed easy and works well. I have not done the same 100 mile loop yet to check temps but they do seem to be a little lower driving around town.

I was hoping for a more in-depth follow-up on the success or failure of this new cooler. - Dave

I really did not notice much of a difference temperature wise however I am sure it helps at least a little. Once car season starts again I will watch the temps and see if it stays cool.
