R380 Oil Cooler Kit


Product Information

When a Vehicle is sold in "Rest of World" (ROW) spec the R 380 gearbox is fitted with an oil cooler, in the TD5 Disco this is a "propper" cooler, in the Defender it"s just a steel pipe that goes forward to the rad, then loops back to the box (waste of time !).

The European spec is not fitted with one. Without doubt the R 380 gets hot when working hard especially in some of the hotter parts of Europe ie Italy, Spain Etc. This heat will have an effect on the lubricants and thus the life of the transmission. 

Please note our adaptor block does not have a thermostatic valve. Note : the oil take off block fits fine on the 300 TDi and the TD5 but can foul the seatbox on earlier vehicles requiring the seatbox to be trimmed to clear,

The kit consists of : 13 row Cooler, 2 x R08 90 deg elbows, 5m x pushfit hose 2 x straight pushfit tails 2 x male/male adapters 2 x Dowty washers 1 x adapter casting 2 x O rings 3 x bolts BZP plated 3 x washers BZP plated

We do not currently supply a mounting bracket for the cooler so this will need to be made locally. The cooler should be located infront of the engine rad where it will get optimum air flow.   The cooler size is 33 x 13 x 5 cm.

We think this cooler kit is a worthwhile addition to any Disco or Defender being used in a hot climate, especially a heavy overlander Etc.
