Im looking to mount my new derale oil cooler to the back of my rad so i can put it up on the rack is there any issues with mounting these coolers sideways? I don't think there is but would like to be sure lol

Nevermind it won't fit vertical with the hoses so will have to figure out a new bracket setup and mount it horizontal with both inlets pointing down or both pointing up which would be better?

Tru cool and b&m say to point there coolers with the 2 ports up so you don't get air trapped in the cooler.

thats what i was thinking but with them pointed up thats a long way up hill to pump oil plus doing oil changes would suck cuz the cooler wouldnt drain then...

rmax you had any trouble with air with the lines down? thinking about doing it this way and running it around the yard a few times then changing the oil again wouldnt that eliminate any air like purging the system when doing brakes with the bleader valve but instead of a valve letting gravity work causing oil up in the cooler to push the air down to the engine then drain the oil and the air should come out?

Here is a pic of mine. Attached to the frame in front of the radiator. Need to make sure no part of the cooler actually touches the frame.
