    Default Oil Cooler ???

    I have this oil cooler, http://www.e-performancemarine.com/i...&productId=236 , it seems that it is leaking water into the oil. Where can I send it to be fixed ?

    Thank you

    Jim, DID you TEST it with regulated air pressure YET????? If so, explain what happened..........Ray

    PS if you recall, with the water lines disconnected and the ends wide open, it did not leak oil. Oil pressure is more than water pressure, so how is it leaking water in, but won't leak oil out???????........Test it...........

    Yep that is one of those cast iron ones, they rust quicker than shit. We market them that way so no-one feels they are getting fucked when they rust overnight. Hit the bricks dumb ass ! If you have nothing to add that is constructive don't add to anyones posts.

    Ray way past that. It is caroded from the salt water here. It needs to be cleaned and then tested again.
    Ray this is a jet boat not a v-drive I have a 9" impeller in my water pump. It pumps lots of water. And you are wrong my water presure can very easly be greater than my oil presure.

    The funny thing is this cooler has way more miles on my boat than most '80 boats. But for argument sake I run a dump right off the pump with a -8 line. The engine has a -12 as well as the sight blead-off to the headers.

    OK. So did it leak?........I realize the drinking (tap) water is kinda salty, but is the river water salty as well?.........Maybe I should look at the picture. I'll be back.......Hey, some famous person said that, "I'll be back"......Now who was that?...........Ray

    PS, I thought it was a picture of yours. That is just a catalog shot.......I saw yours and it was fairly clean, outside. Corrosion will restrict flow, but I can't see it causing a leak unless it ate through the metal, which it didn't or it would leak oil like crazy with the ends wide open.......Tell me about this pressure test..........What pressure? And how bad did it leak?.....Or not?.......Over and out for the night..........

    My cooler is not pictured, if you remember I cleared over the rust so it looked shinny. No leaks as of yet during testing.
