Hayden - Home
, doug and i were discussing this the other day, idk what the specs are on a 7.3 but the 6.0 flows way to much oil to have one oil cooler be able to handle all of it let alone cool it, doug figured it up to flow enough oil to need 2 oil coolers with 3/4" tube, which would just be ridiculous, hope urs is a diff case

Re: oversize oil cooler

my oil is getting hot from having a filled block, but my oil cooler has a crack in it so might as well put a bigger one on instead of putting a stock

Re: oversize oil cooler

OK got it. The thing about the 6.0 flowing too much oil for the 7.3 had we confused about was being discussed.

I seem to recall reading somewhere that most of the off the shelf oil coolers ran -10 an fitting and that for out diesel engine was too not large enough and caused restriction for actually cooling. -12 an were needed for proper flow. Not sure of the validity of this, whether it might have been to sell a particular product, o what. I only recall the info. Think it was speaking about duramaxs a couple of years ago. I have not looked at aux oil coolers in long time so have no idea whats available. I wanted to throw out what I have recalled on it.

Re: oversize oil cooler

Just pull that crap oil cooler and get a big universal air to oil cooler and mount it up front and run your lines. Problem solved.

that's not always tru, it may work slightly better than his cracked one does currently but he needs to make sure it will flow more gpm than what his oil pump does or it will be defeating its purpose. cuz if it just shoves the oil all thru there then it doesnt have time to cool it, it needs to be able to move slow enough to cool the oil to be worth paying the money for

Re: oversize oil cooler

Mine is filled to 1.6''-1.75'' from the deck and I have no oil temp issues. Hottest I have seen is 187 deg.

My bet is your cooler is plugged.

Do you have a coolant filter?
