Still need help
Thanks for posts but still need help. I cannot mount an oil cooler like Jason beavers or others between the engine frame and firewall. My fuel pump, wiring conduit through fuselage, prop governor cable and other stuff that is already near the firewall prevent an oil cooler in that area. I have seen a cooler that appears to be mounted supported by the top cross over bar on the 7 gear mount and if anyone has a similar mount on a 7 engine/gear frame, please let me know.
I plan to mount a scat tube type plenum or connection as high as possible over #4 rear baffle similar to Jason Beavers and others and will connect straight down the back of baffle to a plenum to cover a cooler mounted to or supported by the top crossover tube on the gear frame. If anyone has done something similar successfully, I do not wish t reinvent the wheel. Thanks
