Re: Oil cooler terminal?

John ,
The blow out occurred at the engine fitment and the part was definitely faulty ie thread only half engaged on the engine spigot .

Peter,

a couple of thoughts -

is there anywhere else in the circuit that you can mount the filter so that
it is subjected to lower pressures? Secondly, is it possible to substitute
steel fittings for the alloy parts?

Thanks John ,
The oil filter fittings marketed here by Earls look exactly the same as the
fitting that failed .
One ( female) fitting takes the place of the oil filter by screwing onto
the engine oil filter mount and provides an inlet and outlet connection..
This is the one that failed .The second fitting is similar but male and is
used to remote mount the oil filter.

I am thinking of an aluminium casting purchased from auto aftermarket parts
shop which is screwed onto the engine in place of the oil filter .
A hose goes from this to the oil cooler , then to the oil filter which is
mounted somewhere else , then back to this fitting for return oil to the
sump.
The fitting internal thread was faulty and oil pressure was enough to blow
it off .

Peter, I'm not sure I'd know what a die-cast fitting looked like. The
fittings that screw into the cooler on each side are blue and look like
regular aluminium AN fittings. The large end of the fitting which screws
into the cooler is about 1.5" diameter - the small side that attaches to
the
hose is about 3/4" diameter.

David ,
Unrelated to the terminal . The fittings . Are they Aluminium die cast ? A
Subaru conversion here replaced his oil filter with such a fitting to run
an
oil cooler and remote filter . The diecast thread failed under oil pressure
and the fitting was blown off , he lost all oil and seized the motor .
I am waiting for a brand name but the fittings were branded "made in the
USA" ( unlikely I would think )

I got my engine as a package from a previous builder and it has a remote
oil
cooler. On the back of the cooler is a single terminal stud which seems to
be switched to ground sometimes. I dutifully wired this to a light on the
instrument panel - but I have no idea what it's for. Anyone know what it's
telling me? High temperature? Low temperature? Internal bypass open? Chip
detector? I can't see what make it is without some disassembly but I am
assuming it must be a common feature of oil coolers.
