- MOUNTING FLANGES: Be sure to use all four mounting flanges to prevent them from cracking.
- THREADS: Be sure to use steel fittings with anti-seize on your aluminum cooler. Use of aluminum fittings on aluminum coolers can cause thread galling, especially when pipe threads are involved.
- BOSSES: Use a back-up wrench when torquing fittings to prevent damage to the oil cooler.
- FIN DISTORTION: Once in a while, there may be fin distortion from the use of thermocouples from the braze process. We make every effort to straighten them out without causing further damage. Minor fin abnormalities are only cosmetic and do not affect performance.
