Ok well I finally completed the install of the cooler on my car. There are a couple of things that are a PITA.
This is what was done when I was finished...
Unscrew Top line, Cut of the 5/16th fitting on the hard tranny line. Slip about 8 inches of rubber hose over it and hose clamp it in Three places. ( I was going to flare it and make it all mint but the flare tool I borrowed was not getting along with me).
Now for the connection to the rad.. You have the Rad, Then a Fitting that goes into the rad, and then a fitting that goes into THAT fitting that you slip the hoes onto and clamp down...(follow me?) This is where people seem to have a lot of problems.. mainly because the Brass fitting that screw into the rad's fitting does not fit properly. What I did was unscrew the fitting that screws in to the rad (stock from ford) and I bought a "1/4" Pipe thread" brass adapter, barbed end on the other side for the rubber hose to slide onto, and screw that directly into the rad. (The 1/4" brass I bought was actually for a rubber air hose for like a air gun...)
Now everything is nice and snug and finally no leaks!!! Also a little tip remove the fan/fan shroud it is 2 bolts and a clip for the fan easy to take out and might save a few layers of skin on your hands.
I used about 13ft of hoes when all said and done with it.
Here are some pics so you can see where I mouted the cooler and what not....
Mounted on Drivers side, Drilled 2 holes and mouted useing included bolts.
I bent the cooler down a bit so it would catch a little more air.
Here its not blocking the PS cooler and the rad is still getting a lot of clean air... (White walls in baby lol)
Whoa look.. a cooler...
The red lines are just so you can see how I routed the hose...You can't really see the lines because they are under some wires.. but they are there.
You like..? I like..
I know I know I need to clean under the hood....
