    I added a transmission oil cooler and built a striping skirt for my Tiger Cub

    Did you buy the cooler from a Wildcat?

    Yes, I order a oil cooler and bracket for a Wildcat and purchased 10ft of Parker Push-Loc hose. The bracket bolts right up the holes are already in the Tiger Cub frame. It works good I get about a 15-20 degree temperature drop through the cooler. Plus I switched to Amsoil 20w-50 in my hydro system.

    It was 110F today in your area? So what is the 140F the fluid temperature as measured on the outside of the line? How does this work when it is real cold out.....like at 30F? Any possibility of blowing the seals out if you don't leave it warm up a lot?

    140 is the oil temperature from the pumps into the oil cooler and the 110 is the temperature of the oil out of the cooler back to the tank. These readings are approximant using an infrared thermometer measuring at the inlet and outlet tubes of the oil cooler. I am not suggesting everyone needs an oil cooler on their ZTR I just added one to mine thought it was cool and wanted to share the idea.
