    Setrab sideways oil cooler line routing?

    I think I may have switched my lines on my oil cooler and need confirmation of inlet/outlet. I believe you want the inlet hose at the bottom and outlet hose at top (oil cooler fills from bottom). I have the inlet hose going to the top and outlet hose at the bottom (oil cooler filing from top).

    This is a sideways setrab core (stett stage 2)

    Thrift I hdd then wrong, took a closer look and all is good. Here is a diagram of the way they're meant to be routed.

    Thermodynamically you want the hot in the top and cool out the bottom. Pre-fill the new lines and cooler (mostly full is OK) and fire it up.

    The reason to fill at bottom and disperse at top is to prevent air bubbles and air pockets. You would think it would be better to fill at top and disperse at bottom would be good to let gravity help you, guess not.

    I can't find a diagram for setrab but all the guys who use a duties mounted setrab say to use them per the diagram....if use upside down or up it doesn't matter. This on different platforms but shouldn't matter.
