CAUTION WHEN BUYING FROM OTHER USED SOURCES, THESE UNITS CAN BE NON FUNCTIONING.
"The usual reason for failing is either ingress of water or dirt or both, due to failing o rings, bad mechanic practice, and internal contamination by gear tooth material, like swarf blocking oilways and seized thermostats.
When these thermostats fail, they fail in the cold/prime position. The cold/prime position enables flow via the recirculation ports (as non cooler models) and also allows a little oil to circulate the cooler. when the transmission temps reach 74 degrees celsius, the recirculation ports are then closed allowing oil through the cooler only.
this thermostatically controlled unit allows for the optimum running temp of the R380 transmission, unlike aftermarket non thermostat alternatives. We also "superseal" the rear service point with high grade sealer for off roaders who want to do wading etc. This further measue insures against water contamination.
These are NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH the aftermarket, non-thermostatically controlled oil coolers, which are designed only for use in permanenly hot climates like Kuwait, U.A.E etc.
THE R380 RUNS HOT, AND WHEN THEY OVERHEAT, THEY WEAR OUT PREMATURELY!
THE OPTIMUM/CORRECT RUNNING TEMPERATURE FOR R380 GEAR OIL IS 72 DEGREES CELSIUS.
THE THERMOSTAT ON THESE COOLERS STARTS TO OPEN AT 74 DEGREES CELSIUS. (same as engine oil cooler)
THESE UNITS ARE ABSOLOUTELY ESSENTIAL FOR USE WITH... OVERLANDERS, LOW RANGE GEAR USE, OVERSIZED TYRES, TUNED TD5s & V8/HIGH CAP MODELS, OFF ROAD ENDURANCE COMPETION, ON THE BEACH/SAND, SUMMERTIME TOWING, MOTORWAY TOWING, HILL/MOUNTAIN DRIVING, HOTTER REGIONS OF EUROPE, AUSTRALIA, NORTH/SOUTH AFRICA, SOUTHERN STATES OF AMERICA/SOUTH AMERICA, CANADA AND CANADIAN INTERIOR.
Not only will this save thousands of pounds with your R380, it will also ASSIST IN COOLING THE TRANSFER BOX, MOST COMMONLY THE LT230, WHICH ARE ALSO PRONE TO OVERHEATING AND FAILING.
This is due to heat conduction, (as in with front wheel drive , transverse engine transmissions)
Basically, all the heat in normal use moves backwards from the radiator, and sets a chain reaction.
Because most Land Rovers have very large bell housings, these act as a "heat sink" thus preventing conductive heat contamination into the gearbox from the engine.
The transfer gearbox however, is mated directly to the rear of the R380, Therefore when the R380 gets hot, so does the transfer gearbox (usually) LT230.
We have done temperature/pressure testing and were horrified at the results of both the R380 and the LT230transfer gearbox WITHOUT THE COOLER FITTED.
If you have no gauge or warning light you have no idea what damage is being done.
For this reason,I have also machined out a gauge access point in order to fit temperature/pressure sensors or gauges to the unit. You can literally then see the cooler working in real time, via the dashboard.
All standard oil cooler housings come with a brass blanking plug, which can be very easily drilled and tapped either 1/8 NPT 1/8 bsp/t or M10 x 1, which are most common for gauges and sensors. I also offer this servic
