Icon6 INSTALLED TRANNY COOLER....

HI!... Well I got my tranny cooler installed this weekend. It's a Perma Cool 10"x14", with a 10" electric fan mounted. I installed it up in front of the rad to get good air flow. I also relocated the stock tranny cooler up into the air flow as well due to Ford decided to mount it behind the front bumper where it's basically useless. This way I'm ready for Spring when I install my FUDDLE 3400 stall converter. The fan runs off a 30AMP relay with in line 30AMP fuse. I installed the ON/OFF switch in the vacant spot on the radio bezel. Before anyone says I will overheat do do the placement of the coolers...... well I don't. I ran this same set-up on my F-150 for 10 years without a single problem. Plus I run a 180* stat.

HI!... Yes I'm running two tranny coolers. The high stall converter I'll be installing in the spring will be creating some heat in the trans, so I wanted to make sure it stayed cool. My factory lines were just reinforced rubber hoses. I ran the same style and used S/S hose clamps instead of the factory "PINCH" style clamps.

HI!... Well I bought the fan and cooler separate. They are bot off of my F-150 drag truck. I've owned them both for quite a few years. I got them from SUMMIT RACING.

Your getting 2 more on top of the stock one? That might be too much restriction of the fluid.
