another gearbox cooler type question


Recommended Posts

Almost on this topic...

How easy is it to add an oil cooler to an LT85 box ?

On the LT85, unlike R380's, and LT77's there are no external ports from the oil pump. Even if there were I doubt the little gear type pump would have any reserve capacity to run oil through lines to and from an oil cooler. It's really only designed to lubricate the needle roller bearings that the gears on the mainshaft ride on.

On the LT85 (20C) pump cover casting, noticed there's a small threaded plug sealed in place. Not entirely sure what this is for. If you did run an oil cooler line from it, you'd need to bore holes in the bellhousing and not sure where the oil return would go..
