R21 Cooler system pictures ?
I have my R21 plumed, one return over the diff and the other over 5th gear. I have my oil cooler and my pump is in the mail. So I intend to filter the oil drawn from the drain hole through the pump and on to the cooler then back to the gearbox. This is the shortest route from the drain hole to the pump. Or I have been thinking if I place the pump after the cooler the oil temp will be lower and this must be better for the pump but the length of the system that the pump would need to draw through would be longer. Can I even draw though a cooler? I intend to mount just about the entire system below the oil level in the gearbox. I am using a Mocal type pump.
What do you guys think. Also where would I add a temp sensor? Can I put it in the fill hole and rely on oil splash to get a reading? If not where would/have you put your temp sensor? I do not want to add another bung on the cases.
What temps should I be looking for? I have a Quaife LSD.
Any pictures of your mounting system and location of pumps coolers etc. would be of help.
