Oil Cooler Line Connection

Hi All,

I am thinking about hooking the oil cooler back up in order to keep engine temps down. Some questions about where the lines hook up at the oil filter end.

1) Does it matter what orientation the adapter is facing when attached to the engine. Which side is up?

2) Does it matter which line goes to which side of the adapter? If so, which goes where?

Thanks.

I place the adapter (looking from above filter) with one fitting at 10 and one at 7 o'clock. Top line (10 o'clock) goes to top line on cooler. It really doesn't matter to the functionality, they just naturally sit parallel to each other. Be mindful the cooler fittings are aluminum and you can cross thread or gaul the threads easilly. Always start it by hand, NEVER forcing it.

Hi John,

I put it on yesterday with fittings facing at about 4 and 7 o'clock.

The one thing I noticed was that the piece where the hose connects to the filter has an opening on the engine side. That opening most closely matches the one on the engine at 4 and 7. Should these be lined up? Does it matter if these are / are not?

Thanks,

Mike
