    I ripped the AC out of my K5 is it possible that I can use my condenser as a trans cooler? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    You can, but I understand that freon leaves behind a residue thats hard on auto tranny seals & clutches.

    might be too large – i think it would take additional pressure from the tranny to push all that fluid around and may cause a circulation problem…

    It was there and doing nothing but if it will break something inside my tranny I'll just toss it and buy a cooler. Thanks. /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif

    Hey instead of just tossing it, would all that AC stuff fit in a 6.2 diesel? The blazer i am getting (hopefully this week, if my Dad gets some cash) had all the AC stuff taken off, so i would like to buy it from you if it would fit.
