Re: Replacing transmission oil cooler
The Velvet Drive 72C always has an oil cooler fitted to the system. This is quite normal and every transmission shop and marine mechanic will agree with this.
My Perkins HT6-354 with over 20,000hrs on it and which I rebuilt and maintained myself over 20yrs. did not have a gear cooler on the 72C. I never had a gear problem and don't think I could have overlooked a cooler when I pulled the engine.
The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.
