Wanted Help Couple Hours Work in Vic

Hi all
I am getting To the end of my buil and my health is going down hill to.

Need some help because I can't do this, remove the two valves where the oil filter goes and replace the with the two higher psi ones, this is to stop the oil from bypassing my remote filter.

The right person must know what the are doing, I have ramps, stands etc.

Paul

Paul, it's pretty easy if you just give it a try. Basic tools. Nothing special.
Have a go, if you get stuck, I'll come and help you..

All done thank you Steve for the tutorials, I actually loosened the middle one before pulling the half inch bolt out, so when I removed the bolt the valve dropped out. The side one took 60 seconds.

What took all the time was getting around the headers, dash 10 fittings and line.

The putting it back together I dropped 5 ltrs of oil on the drive.

Thank mate I owe you one, but at least the car should be doing the right thing now. It's been sitting on 180-190 degrees, I have the fans come on at 190, so it's been staying just below that. I took it for a 30 min drive and it's perfect.

The temp is taken at the remote head, my thinking is that a lot of heat is dissipated here so I will get an accurate reading for oil temp. I also have another temp guage which is mechanical, I would like to put that in the engine somewhere, that is a project for a bit later.


The net gain after all this; here is a more stable water temp because trans and oil systems are being individually cooled.

Ben I am running the oil cooler in series not parallel, eg not via the optioned fact outlets, I have put inline with filter, and with dash10 fittings.

Lucky I did do it yesterday, it rained here until lunchtime

Ben is your oil system working for you yet?

Ok Ben I have taken the car out for two different runs, both an hour at a time, one on a 27 deg C And the other was today late around 18 deg C

Oil temp was around 200 deg F and my oil thermo comes on

Water temp drops from 200 deg F in traffic and at lights to 180 deg F

Driving around at speed limit the car sits on 190 deg F but as soon as the oil temp goes past 200 deg F the temp then drops to 180 deg F

Readouts were the same on both days.

Based on this the system seems to be working fine.

I just need a 35 deg C day o see how it is in heat.

Hope that helps

Are you sure it's not working?

Steve might have another suggestion but if I encountered your situation I was going to purchase a glass petrol filter and plumb it in line to my remote setup, this will show you very quickly if the oil is moving or not. They are about $15 bucks with barb fittings.

You could do some long plumbing into the cabin.

Just a thought, ideally an oil psi guage would bethe best, I have one of these to plumb into mine.
