MT -82 transmission cooler setup

Finally got my transmission cooler setup completed. took most of the day making hoses, mounting the pump and wiring up a relay. Used the same toggle switch that the diff cooler is on. Maybe will add separate swiches if I do a radio blank off switch panel down the line.

Used the FR 500 power steering cooler as the matrix, -8 AN lines and fittings for fluid transfer and Tilton lube pump.

Also added my Speedway Motorsports Nomex radiator protector. That stuff is awesome, definitely bulletproof protection.

I am on track Friday and Saturday at Lime Rock so I will see how temperatures at the trans are.

Found a good spot inside the right front fender, there's a nice big hole there where the old windshield washer bottle used to be, pump and 90 degree fittings look like they'll fit in there. Will have to put some rivnuts in there to mount it, that's a new thing for me. Should be healthier for it out there I expect it's not going to get a lot of heat from the engine being up front and out of the main part of the engine room.tilton pump.jpgtilton pump2.jpg

Nice. Once you start with Ruvnuts it’s hard to stop. Open up so many possibilities.
