Re: AAIIIC's oil cooler thread
Thanks. I'm hoping it will perform well, and I guess I'll find out middle of next month when I hit VIR again.
I'm pretty sure I found the source of the leak this evening - I bought the wrong fittings to go into the Hamburger's take-off adapter. Not sure how I managed something so stupid, but they're supposed to be o-ring fittings, and I used normal 12AN-to-10AN adapters. Stupid, but at least it should be an easy fix.
Edit: New fittings on order from Summit, will hopefully have them Friday so I can get the car back together this weekend and start getting some miles on this setup. I also ordered another remote oil filter mount that is the same configuration as the one I've got (so I won't have to change the plumbing), but is 13/16" instead of 3/4", so I can use the same filters I had been using.
