position of oil cooler

Post  Mr Shiny on Thu Sep 27, 2012 8:43 pm

can anybody tell me if i can get away with fitting an oil cooler on the underside of the slap panel (box section) of a mk2 so the oil pipes go in the bottom of the cooler & not in the top like you normally see. the reason i ask is the the front panel is filled in on the bottom & there are slats on the top so would make an ideal place.

Oil cooler

I have my oil cooler at the top of the grill mounted off the top cross piece, but I still have the pipes going in at the top. Once I'm back home I could post some pictures if that helps.

Going to be quite hard to bleed it if the pipes are at the bottom and it'd be impossible to pre-fill it before connecting it to the rest of the system. Could you make some extension brackets to allow it to be mounted with connections on the top?

I welded a couple of plates to the oil fittings and then bolted these to another couple of plates welded to my Scamp.
