Rad Hoses Again

Went and got aftermarket upper and lower hoses for the bronco from gates. Seem like good quality but wasnt much cheaper than that from the factory. But upon closer inspection I need another hose that hookes up the final foot from the lower rad hose to the pump with a couple smaller hoses teed off of it to the oil cooler. No one makes this special item except ford and this special part cost $100 CDN. Does Ford got me the balls or is there another choice? Someone else with a late model bronco must have run into this part dilemma already. Mines a 95Bronco 5.8l

Re: Rad Hoses Again

Yes, mine is the same. I suppose this oil cooler was a part of the tow package?? Anyway, I went to Schucks auto parts here in the northwest and they listed the part, but I believe it was Gates as well because cost was about $75 USD, about what the dealer wanted. Fortunately, the dealer insisted I need not replace mine at this time, hose was still just fine.

Re: Rad Hoses Again

I have a 93 351 and I don't know what hose your are speaking of. I've pulled them off many times and haven't run into a $$ part like that. Is it only on a special tranny oil cooler?


Your Toy is loaded huh? Does it have Power Engine?

Re: oil cooler hose

No muddy it's an engine oil cooler. It screws onto the block where the filter goes then you screw your filter on the cooler. It's a really tight squeeze unless you use a K&N filter like I got with a 13/16 nut on the end. I'm gonna take it off next spring. I don't tow anything so there is no need for it. I also don't like the fact that coolant flows through it instead of air!! Another bad ford design.

Re: oil cooler hose

I actually like the design. Tight fit yes. Hopefully it actually provides some decent temp reduction. This design is or was also used on Fold Police Interceptor vehicles.

Re: oil cooler hose

broncoman, did you specify you needed the lower for a 5.8 with a OPTIONAL oil cooler? Gates probably has it but you have to mention the option when buying it.

Re: Oil Cooler delete

I'm gonna set in on my parts shelf unless you want it. I'll get a picture of it tomorrow if it don't rain. It'll be in my webshots site, 'cause I can't figure out how to change the size of the file so i can post it on here. ANY tips?????

Re: Oil Cooler delete

Slikerthanyou, it really NOT a bad design, all med to lg size diesel engines have a water cooled oil cooler including the 7.3l IHC(basically a heat exchanger). Even my wives mazda MX-6 has one![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]I have also seen them on the new Cadillac Catera engine which probably means the Northstar eng.has it also.

The main advantage is not having to worry about a rotting high pressure oil hose bursting and loosing oil pressure, since im sure OEMs would never use a stainless steel braided hose because of the cost...
