Smile Need instructions on Installing 6.0 cooler in my x

I am getting ready to install my 6.0 L transmission cooler. Anybody have instructions they are willing to share?

I have heard anyplace from one to six hours.

The X is my only vehicle so any little pieces of hardware I need to have on hand is a great help.

Thanks,

Talking Re: Need instructions on Installing 6.0 cooler in my x

I'm gonna take 2 1/2" couplings 2 1/2" hose barbs, and 2 3/8" to 1/2" hose barbs We have a V-10 cooler here that has some hose on it, so I figure I'll use that to go between the cooler and the barbs then through the couplings to the 1/2' to 3/8' barbs to 3/8' hose use the apropreate hose clamps and call it done after cheaking for leaks. I'm gonna proble suck out the freon and pull the condensor to make the install easier. I've heard you can just pull it back and squeezze your arm down between the rad and condensor, but the fins on the con are sharp so be carefull. I'm proble forgetting something , but I know someone will fill in any blacks I missed.

Re: Need instructions on Installing 6.0 cooler in my x

Not sure what an "x" is but I put on in my 2000 crew, it was easy. Take the plastic grille out, unbolt the condinser off the support, unbolt the origonal tranny cooler, undo the tranny lines and pull the old cooler out.

Before fitting the 6.0 cooler in fasten about a foot of 1/2" rubber line to each barbered boss. Make sure to get the nuts off the origonal cooler tabs and place them on the new cooler. Now put the new cooler in, secure it, secure the condenser and replace the grille. On the ends of the 1/2" lines that are now hanging use a couple fittings to go from 1/2" to 3/8" and run them to the tranny and the rad cooler. I think it took me maybe an hour.

Thanks! I am not familiar with all the newer Ford names or acronyms. This is the newest rig I have owned in many years. I am used to my ol 71 Ford highboy talk
