Re: Transmission Oil Cooler set up? Questions
Further to last post. Gears with disks and pump are like an automatic car trannie. Oil is cooled externally in a water /exchanger. I usually mount them cross ways on top of gear because its convenient to hose up to riser if raw water cooled. Personally. I like to route engine water from big hX then to engine. (no salt corrosion ,, leak into gear oil and then to bilge problem) Watch out for air lock in hose routing.Bubbles rise to loops.
