Oil cooler question


Recommended Posts

Having a clear out and came across this which i bought with a load of kit years back. Not one ive seen before seems quite a good with the oil return feed into oli filter cover. Anyone have any experience of this  or have any  thoughts on it

Isn't it an EFE pressure switch plate with the oil temp sensor removed? I'm not that up on GSX oil systems but isn't the space behind the filter cover full of unfiltered oil? If so, that set-up is dumping unfiltered oil into the main gallery?

It looks as though the oil leaves the engine via the takeoff on the oil pressure switch plate & returns into the oil filter housing. The problem is that the oil is also still running around the engine via its normal circuit so only some of the oil (or maybe none) will find its way to the oil cooler. It's only fit for the bin (or Eblag)

Logical explanation - I forgot the oil switch on these works as a relief valve ie. lifting on pressure about 1 psi LOL!  So cooler will get pressurised oil @ whatever pressure the engine makes but can't imagine flow will be much via the switch !
