hi all i have a oil cooler on me moggie been on there for 1yr no problems so just wanna help anyone else out and put my mind in peace haha

is there a right way to mount them EG
with the pipes at the top so the cooler always has oil in
with pipes at the bottom so it drains it .....

pipes at the top would then act like a dirt bottle dropping shit thick oil at the bottom and blocking a row (bowl effect) OR
pipes at the bottom would have a traped air area and would maybe only use half the stacks (10 row but uses only 5rows)

SO Pros and cons what is your opinions
thanks Ash

B/M state in their instructions that the oil should go into the lower port first, out the top.
Cooler may be mounted with the inlet/outlet to the left or right never facing down.
This how mine is setup.

Here you go, finally found B/M´s Cooler Mounting Instructions.
This shows a transmission cooler but I assume it´s good for engine oil coolers as well.
Both inlet and outlet facing down would cause airlocks.

What are you on about, transmissions have an oil fluid not frikkin water,
and engine oil is not a thick liquid either and it´s under pressure also ?


"i can feel the hot oil running on my hand and its not that hot"

It´s either hot or it´s not hot.

Did you install the cooler on the moggie ?

Sorry mate, but you thinking an auto trans runs on water's one of the funniest things I've read in ages! I'm guessing that maybe you've seen a diagram of a standard auto trans cooler set up which is often built in to the bottom of the main radiator. can't work out why you're trawling through the B&M site to see how to plumb in an engine oil cooler though.
