Talk about timely...I was just about to bodge together a system this weekend!

Not a terible price either...I wonder who's cooler it is?

Dimentions?
Is there a temp switch or do you have a temp switch that could be used to control the fan?
Is this bug enough to use one for a tranny cooler and one for the steering?

Dimensions please and details on the mounting brackets (if any) that are included. Also, could a second cooler be stacked under this? I'd like to put an oil cooler in as well but don't have enough room for two seperate setups.

It's 12" x 12" with a 10" fan double row tubed cooler with AN-8 fittings. I would have replied sooner but I was trying to find the cfm's of the fan and how many amps it draws. Haven't found the info on that yet but will have it soon. We can't seem to keep these in stock very long.

Howe why is the 10" fan larger than the 12"x12" cooler? also do you have any barb adapters so i can just run hose clamps on the low pressure side? thanks.

Because I was measuring the aluminum brackets that mount the cooler not the cooler itself. No we don't have any barb adapters it's AN-8 fittings. This is what makes this product different than the ones other companies sell. We will NEVER use a push on hose design because that is not the most professional way to do it. We are just not interested in that at all.

Why -8? My whole steering system is -6. Any way to get it with -6 fittings?

Because when we build a power steering system we never run -6 fitting for return. You should alway's run the return hose one size larger than the pressure. This will help prevent the pump overheating. Look at our web site under hose diagrams.www.howeperformance.com

That's about a dumb ass response. Listen to what the guy is trying to teach you. I struggled with my steering for over three years before I called the guys at Howe and got my shit together. It works so good it's like a new car now and all I can sya is thanks to them for that.

Dreadfully sorry to have offended your delicate sensibilities, rocknut.

I have nothing but respect for Jeff Howe.... your credentials, rocknut, are less clear (registered today, no public email, no previous posts). Do me a favor and go back to read the specifics of Paul's question, OK? You may see that I answered HIS question.

FWIW, the color of his Jeep nothwithstanding , Paul is a pretty intelligent guy. I'm pretty he's more than capable of making his own judgement call on whether he wants to go AN-6 or AN-8, and I imagine he'll consider Jeff Howe's response on its own merits. Though perhaps not optimal, Paul already has AN-6 pressure and return lines, so he might consider spending <$20 for adaptors to install the Howe cooler. He might also choose to just drop the coin on bigger hoses. His choice... neither is likely to make his current PS flow/cooling issues any worse, right?

Thanks for adding your opinion to the fray, though. I'm complimented that you registered today just to berate me...

Randii

I was in a speed-shop today and saw a setup that was almost exactly the same. Might have even been exactly the same. Price?...$190...$30 more
Nice price Jeff

That makes sense. I should clarify - my system is -6 until the reservoir, and then -10 to the pump. Lots of flow to the pump. Thanks for the response.

Thanks, Randii.
