Had a few more questions about the cooler.

1) Does it increase oil capacity or do you need to add more oil when installing?

2) Not sure on how the oil flows to the engine but is the oil to the cooler after the engine receives its oil and before it returns to the sump or visa versa?

Thanks for your time,

Jason

This engine family uses submersion-oiled roller bearings in its bottom end, and the small rod end, piston skirts and tranny gears are splash-oiled. The oil pump in this motor pretty much exists solely to serve the cam bearings and operates at a very low pressure (10 PSI, or less).

This difference is significant in that a cooler does not interrupt any high-pressure main arteries as it would on an engine with babbit-type bearings. Hence no need for braided stainless or hard lines. More on this later.

Any oil not used to feed the cam is bypassed to the crankcase. It is this bypass oil which is being re-routed and cooled.

If you're looking to increase CAPACITY rather than cooling I'd suggest a remote oil tank as it takes a pretty massive cooler to even begin to contain any meaningful amount of additional oil. I've measured lots of them and even some quite large multi-pass coolers won't hold more than a few ounces. Mine is no exception.

Check over on the tw200 forum, I'm not sure if anyone took over the project or not.
