    yeah, I got the one with the fittings. I'm not sure if the cooler I have is a oil cooler or tranny cooler so I just got the one with the fitting. I think I need them anyway... I'll just replace the existing ones if that's the case.

    I was actually going to get that one but it didn't come with the installation components. I may have screwed myself it my junk already has a tranny cooler on it but I'll just replace all the old components, I guess. I hope the install is as easy as it sounds /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif.

    don't we have 3/8" fittings on our tranny lines? how do you get a 1/2" fitting to connect? adapters and hoses? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Summit has it for $60!!! by the way, that one doesn't come with an installation kit so you'll need fittings, hose, and whatever you plan to use to attach it. That's definitely the one to get though /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: will this size tranny cooler fit on my K5?

    Hey Chris, whatever you do, make sure that you still use the existing tranny cooler in the radiator as well as the aftermarket one. If you don't do this then you will overheat the tranny in the summer and run it too cold in the winter.

    Uh oh... I didn't mess with the radiator, I just pulled the old one out and replaced it with the new one. Is that right?

    if you had an auxiliary tranny cooler on already, and you just swapped for your new one, then you should be fine. The cooler lines should run from the tranny, to your radiator, to the aux cooler, and back to the tranny.

    If you don't go wheeling where it freezes you don't need to run it through the radiator. I don't and my 700R4 runs at 140. 155 in this 100+ weather. I have the same cooler, just had a hard time getting it to fit and not pick up mud when I go deep.
