    Hey All,
    Do you need to install the cooler lower than the neck of the PS pump - will it drain out and leak if the cooler is higher?

    It seems like I have seen pics of some mounted higher but want to make sure before I make a mess!

    Please post pics of where you mounted yours.

    No questions are stupid when you ask them, some of them seem that way afterwards though.... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Why did you need to mount it higher? I mounted mine on the back of my radiator and it seemed like the only decent place to mount it.

    I did it on the front of the ac condensor above the oil cooler. I made brackets using 2 existing holes on the valance panel. It was a clean way to route the hoses and it fit perfectly.

    Wish I had a dig-cam......

    Lotta shite behind the grill - I will probably have cooling issues dud to poor airflow if/when I put a new engine in the beast.
