Last post for me on this subject.

is it just me or was that not even close to being an answer to my question. if you are trying to say im stupid and do things the half ass way and spend double the money thats a very uneducation statement to make. you dont know me from a hole in the ground. so were did that statement come from? as i said before use what ever cooler you want but in my opinion 2 as always better then one.
any temp over 240 degrades any oil life very rapidly. when the oil goes bad so will the trans. a properly cooled trans will stay below 180 in the pan, and 220 or so in the line.On a related note, what is a reasonable trans. temp for a C4 transmission (I guess it would be the same for all trannies)? I.E. somewhat normal operating temp. and what would be considered getting too hot
C'mon, don't tell me all you guys just have the thing on a toggle switch! Anybody?lump-dog said:Hey, since we are on the subject, I'd like to know what type of thermostat controllers you guys are using to turn on the fan. Also, where's the best place to put the controller, in the pan? hot side of the cooler? in the trans cooler line? Any insight you may have would be helpfull. (2001 f150 supercrew)
Well you could but I rather put my money else where you know. Plus you have a co-driver thats part of his job and its reliable plus if you know theres a brutal wash coming soon you can put them on early to get it a little cooler before you hit it.lump-dog said:Thanks for the reply, but I don't need one more thing to forget to check. It can't possibly be that "low-tech" for all you racers, can it?
johnnyweb said:toggle switches it is for use to. im not going to rely on and mechanicl t stat switch to turn on. same goes for having the trans cool before it gets to hot. if we know from prerunning that its a long wash or silt section coming up we will have the coolers going befor we hit the section. i dont worry about it any way its the co drivers duty.
