    Mines all seperate sizes between the series so it’s all good. Once made. Should never have to touch again

    I get that, I had a fully functioning system but have tipped another $1500+ into it for this build…

    It’s been the single biggest expense of the project..

    Pulled up a bit lame yesterday so had an r&r day, back into it today, made my master cylinder reservoir mount up then bolted my oil coolers in to make sure there’s room for the -10 hoses, off to Sunbury to grab some smaller washers as I have nothing here to suit..

    Pretty happy how it’s all coming together so far! Be happier when the plumbing’s finished…

    ————————————

    Mocked up the rest of the coolers so there’s no surprises then checked fittings… doh need a few more as suspected.

    Put the tools away and cleared the BMW and engine out of the work space..

    Yep par for the course I guess, just figured starting with a complete functioning car as a Donor would minimize the spend…

    ——————————————

    Been down the Shed fiddling, cleaned out my Oil Thermostat, noticed the ports through to the Cooler were wide open, this is a new Unit I bought when I had the Blower engine in the Tonner as my old one had come from my Supra and had done a LOT of work..

    The old one was a 90/10 thermostat meaning at all times there was oil flow through both sides it just reversed when hot, hence my confusion looking through the new unit..

    I thought maybe it had jammed open so pulled it apart then grabbed the Heat gun to test the sensor, all good I had NFI, did a search on Google and it turns out it’s operation is very different to the old one.

    It’s laid out in a H in/out on the top legs of the H Cooler loop on the bottom legs and the horizontal is the bypass, how it work is the bypass is open when cold so the Oil takes the path of least resistance then as the Oil heats up the bypass closes and flows through the Cooler..

    Very clever design, learnt something new!

    Yes it’s very simple & fail safe in design  :good:

    And nice to learn there’s another way it can be done, another couple of hundred in fittings and I “think” I’m good…

    Had to shoot into Kyneton to get a tool for a job I’m doing, grabbed a Bento for lunch, on the way back stopped by the post office to collect hose and fitting order #2…

    I’d forgotten just how much I despise working with Teflon hose, so many pita details to get it right..

    Cooler, Remote Filter and the Accumulator are all done, still have the Engine In/Out to do but will wait till I bolt the engine back in for those. I’m stopping while I have a little sanity left, now I remember why 400 series was so attractive.

    The Aeroflow Braid explodes when you remove the tape after you cut it…

    It’s almost like running hardline as it’s not that flexible, so runs have to be exact.

    The explosion gets very tiresome. Braid under the finger nails is worse lol

    I found the speedflow stuff pretty flexible. But it’s prob why it’s double the price hahah
