Hello all! First post on here...
I have a 72 Mach 1 w/ a 351C that I am doing some serious work to, including converting it over from a 2V to a 4V setup. In the process, I have purchased an oil cooler setup (complete except for the mounting brackets for the actual radiator). Well, my mechanic-buddy and I have been trying to install it and we cannot figure out how to get the oil cooler adaptor to fit in the space where the oil filter now goes. The adaptor is part D1ZE-6881-AA and has two 90-degree pipes coming out the side where the hoses attache to the nipples. The problem is that it appears that the adaptor (esp one the filter is attached to it) will either hit the chassis, power steering box, or something in that rather tight space.
Does anyone know how to install the adaptor and get it to fit correctly, if possible? This is supposed the right part number, but is it perhaps the hose attachment pipes are incorrect?
Thanks for any help!
