    Metric 22mm Socket fits just fine

    Install the gasket on the adapter then install adapter onto engine

    You will need a 7/16 Allen wrench not a common one for the tool box i bought one when i ordered the kit and im a repair man not one i ever used

    Next remove Volt Regulator and reposition wires The instructs are really lame here ..

    Then assemble the Shield Bracket and oil cooler together

    [​IMG]

    Hang the oil cooler on the studs for regulator and then hang the regulator

    [​IMG]

    Make sure to space you hose clamps so you can re tighten later if need be

    install filter


    Fire it up check of leaks


    I know they say they have a 185 degree thermostat but it seemed to open a bit fast temp was only running about 115 on a thermal gun then dropping fast to re warm up .. i know there is a difference reading outside but that 70 degree difference
