Doubts about autobox donut cooler

Post by Slagtrooper »

I'm having some ideas to transform the donut cooler for the 4HP14 BVA in a external one.
Anyone saw or tried to do something like that? Things like installing that Jasma oil coolers?

I think with something like this, the BVA could benefit for getting a complete flush, work with less temperatures and specially - Endure the hotter climates like ours in summer, that gets easily above 32ºC every day. Above 40ºC is not too difficult too :o

How are you going to get the oil in and out? Is it possible on this box?

That's the problem, i still don't know how it works, if the oil comes only from the hollow screw, something like that.
The main idea behind that is the ease of changing the oil, so it don't need a big external cooler.
It will function like that boxes with external coolers, when you disconnect one hose and put into a jar and you add new oil. When the old oil starts to become new, you stop and reconnect the hose.

Something funny: I saw some Daewoo Leganza 4HP14's and they're different. No Donut, only two hoses.
