Fitting a aux oil cooler to a 850

Post  oblark on Sat Sep 21, 2013 6:42 am

This arrived in the post today, just waiting for the hose, o clips and the alloy angle to mount the oil cooler.

It`s 13 row oil cooler which will nicely fit in the opening under the number plate



It will be mounted to a piece of alloy angle with the inlet/outlet of the cooler at the bottom.

Whilst waiting for the alloy angle to arrive in the post I decided to see how the factory hose where attached.


Before



Got the angle grinder out and put 3 cuts in the outer sleeve.



Then cut the hose off with a stanley knife, the factory pipe has ridges in it so no need to flare the metal pipe.




Cut and mounted the alloy angle to the cooler.



The hose was fitted to the two pipes that come from the engine with 2 "O" clips on each joint (don`t want them to pop off )



Will update once the oil cooler has been fitted.

Had a day off work today as the boiler is due a service, lucky enough the guy arrived early and was done by 11 so it was then out to finish the oil cooler off.

Had to remove the bolts from the side engine mount and lift the engine 2" so i could get the bolt out of old oil pipe clamp.



then it was off with the bumper so the oil cooler could be mounted to the alloy beam that runs across the car.



The pipes where cut to length and then pressure tested, I just linked them together and connected them to my compressor, then pressureized them to 150psi all ok no leaks



Both the pipes where refitted along with the bumper then topped the oil up with a litre of oil. Started the car and ran it at various rpms to warm engine and oil up and after 20mins the pipes and oil cooler where warm.
