Hi, can anyone tell me what the size of the adapter is that comes out of the auxiliary trans cooler that the cooler line screws into? It looks like 1" NPT coming out of the cooler down to a 7/8" NPT that is on the cooler line.

I want to install a B&M 70297 cooler. It has a 1/2" NPT female fitting. I think if I get a 1/2" NPT female to a 7/8" NPT male, I can install this without having to cut the factory lines. But I need to know the size of the factory end to make sure I get the right adapter. Anybody know for sure? Thanks.

Thanks Mike. You're a Saint.

Why the adapter if they're both 7/8" x 14 thread?

You know, if you havn't purchased that cooler already, Mike makes a dandy cooler that's plug and play. Just unbolt the old and plug in the new. Nothing extra to buy or fab, just that easy........and it works great too! Bill

Well, I've been surfing the net and found a different cooler that may work better. It has AN-12 fittings, which I believe is very close to 3/4" NPT. It's from Setrab. Cooler measures 7.5"x13"x2". According to my calculations, it should have almost 2.5 times the cooling capabilities of the stock unit. Now I just have to find a AN-12 to NPT 7/8" adapter fitting and I'll be all set. They also have a 16" wide one, but that is over 3 times the cooling capability, I think that may be getting too much.

The more I thought about it, I really don't want to have to cut the factory lines. I guess I could just push the fitting down out of the way and use hydraulic 5/8" ID hose and a AN-12 to 5/8" barb adapter with double clamps on each end. We'll see.

Looks like you are looking at my cooler.):h

There is no fitting to push out of the way. You must cut it.
