FWIW, I put a Cobra radiator in my Thunderbird (which doesn't have a tranny cooler) and I used that exact cooler on the front for the trans cooler.

Good news: it works
Bad news: the trans temp runs like 200* on hot days which I know is too high - I'll get the big 45K btu cooler beast that Robert sells when I get the funds!

Too small in my opinion. Then again I am running the tru-cool 45,000 btu transmission cooler. However the kit robertp is selling would probably be sufficient if your bird is stock.

The 45k btu cooler is 8 1/2 x 22 3/4 x 1 1/4 inch.... the kit Robertp has for sale is 11 x 11 3/4 x 3/4 inch, my guess is it's rated closer to 20k btu

Wouldnt you say a fan is needed on the 45k cooler if youre in NV or AZ, NM, or TX.

I know that cooler just radiates the heat on the summer where I think it might be too hot for the trans.

On the other hand running hot is a tbird tradition LOL.

I don't have a temp gauge for the trans yet, so it's hard to tell, but I am working on a fan system for mine.

well i do want one of RobertP's but can't afford it right now. i seen this one for 22.99 i figure i should get this one until i can get RobertP's. i do have the jmod and a tune and it does shift firm. so should i get it to hold me over or just wait about 2 months to get the other.

That's the cooler he recommended for my setup. It is supposedly rated for a motor home towing 10,000 lbs. I'd say that's enough for me. lol

For an extreme budget, here, this.

http://www.amazon.com/Hayden-Automot.../dp/B000C39CL8

What the OP posted is a fin and tube cooler. Way less than optimal.

For those who are curious, on the 45k coolers you don't need a fan.

- I went with a brand new Ford P/N F4TH 7A095 for $25 off EBAY - Optional Trans Cooler on the old Windstars but the Ford P/N has a nice bracket well suited to under Bumper installs on Mk's & Tbirds although it was probably in front of Rad stock (which I would NEVER do) - It's just a $60 B&M 70273 with a bracket - Compression fittings on existing lines cut at Passenger side & Hose Barb adapters to a short run of $3 a foot dude Hi Press line - & Yes this is one of the things you can shop to death on EBAY once you know what size & thickness your desired location will handle.

- I say delete the Rad Cooler PERIOD - You do NOT want to end up like the dudes who have seen our Plastic ended Aluminum Cored Rads fail - It AINT pretty - I've seen some favorable changes in how my VCRM kicks in the Fan since I deleted the Tranny heat load fm Rad - Up North you'll need some kinda Fluid Temp Sensing Valve.

GET OFF MY LAWN~! ... & Let's not forget guys... There's still a dead Imaginary Ex-Girlfriend out there...

We are referring to the kit he has on sale. Not the 45k kit. I am aware that he sells both. Also for what it's worth, he isn't the only source for a tru-cool 4739-1 45k btu cooler. We were recommending an affordable slightly larger cooler to the OP rather then the smaller tube and fin unit he found, however the 45k unit is probably the best solution for a modified car, if the OP's car is slightly modified or not modified at all, running the cooler posted in the link that robert has on sale would be more then sufficient.

Also yes I am very familiar with the 45k cooler on his website, that ThunderChecken and TrunkMonkey, are using, I'm running the same unit on my car.



You can see the cooler in the picture behind my crash bumper.

With no stall converter I'm sure that unit will be sufficient on your set up, however if you plan on upgrading the TC I'd go with the larger one, that way you don't have to spend money twice.

Agreed, still a much better choice then the sub par tube and fin.

I think Robert did the same on mine, I understand it helps get the fluid up to temp on cold starts

Hate to sound like a jerk, but whatever it takes to bring it up to the appropriate full cold or full hot mark on the dipstick.

An extra qt maybe? Buy 2 to be safe?

Glad to help, If I recall correctly my car took something like 16 qts expensive. Then again my transmission was completely empty, so that's what it took to fill the system with the 45k cooler, LPW deep sump transmission pan, lines, converter, transmission itself, etc... But if all your doing is disconnecting the line from the rad, splicing in a small cooler, and needing to top it off I doubt it would take more then 1qt. I just say get 2qts to be safe, better to have too much on hand then having to go back out to the parts store to get more fluid to top it off.

Robert and I are installing a Mark VIII converter here in under two weeks. That's the most I'm going to be running for a few years as I am a relatively broke college student. I won't get a serious Dirty Dog converter until I have some real money rolling in.

Try 100-120 degrees during the day sitting in traffic stop and go style for a while. And if not stuck in traffic Im likely driving a little aggressive, mostly because thats how AZ wants you to drive.

I cant wait to see what you come up with for the fan set up. Ill be no doubt doing one myself. I hope the lines from DD stop it from getting hot enough to do any damage just by regular driving everyday come summer time.

Spinning pies like wheels.

When I finally get around to doing it I'll be sure to post many pictures of the set up as well as detailed information on what I used.

I got a cooler from DD similar to the 679 i believe with his aluminum cooler lines. IIRC he made me the lines and bypassed the radiator all together. He said it would be good for the south dakota enviroment of below zero winter temps to over 100 summer temps. I will be moving to AZ this summer tho so maybe itll work out.
