Re: In Radiator Trans Cooler for Power Steering?
I have a Buick 455 and am using a radiator from a 95 Dodge diesel. The rad. has 2 aux coolers (tranny and engine oil).
I was using the aux for front steering (full hydro and 44's welded rockwell) and for the tranny (THM-400).
The tranny was getting hot so I pulled it from the radiator auxillary cooler and ran a seperate cooler right behind the grill. I still run the front hydro in the rad. with no cooling issues. I have a mechinacal fan behind the radiator and a Tauruas fan in front of the radiator (behind the tranny cooler). (will post pic's in a day or so of all my progress on the Jeep, lot's of stuff going on here)
The rear steering has a cooler tied to the rear tube cage with no fan and it never gets hot to the touch.
On the CJ I installed an auxillary cooler for the steering (welded front). When mounted in front of the radiator the steering overheated. When mounted behind the radiator, it stayed cool. Either way, you will most likely need to add an electric fan to the mix....
