This is the oil part of a system I started to help keep engine temperatures stable. My oil cooler intake and location is radical. The idea of the post is the layout diagram rather than the location of the components. The oil thermostat opens at 215° F. As it opens, a bilge fan comes on so whether the cruiser is moving or not, air will pass through the cooler core.

Bill, I've said it before and I'll say it again...


You Are Awesome!!!

I'm seeing a trend. PM, why accusump? Why remote mount the filter?

Between this and your trans cooler setup, you have a lot of complexity, more than I put in full track race cars. Before you go this far, get some of the 'engineer to win' series books that speak to ducting, cooling, scoops and heat management.

I'd put in the 215F thermostat, mount the cooler in the radiator fan flow, and duct it. Thermo sandwich for the oil filter and call it a day. Overkill of hardware is fine, but overkill the design and you have KISS theory, without all the hardware. See you trans cooler setup for bilge pump use.

Thanks Turbo! :cheers:

When I was traveling with the cruiser it was mostly to colder environments, and I wanted something that would help prolong engine life on cold starts. Hence the Accusump.

I want to remote the filters, including the fuel filter, so they are basically all in one place for ease of changes.

Too late.

Good! You have taken my complex plan and found a much simpler solution that you would be satisfied with. Let me know how it works.
