Still working FWF but here's a couple photos.
Sorry, never have figured out how to get a vertical photo to post correctly.

Hi Larry

I like your mount. Was it bought in or did you fabricate pls ?

I held off putting the cooler on the baffles due to the cracking issues others mentioned.

Thanks
Ian

Thank you, All!

I am moving forward with the RV-10 Firewall mount and cooler like Larry and Dusty have done. I know that things will be tight, as others have mentioned and I totally agree with!

I will let you know how I make out.

Thanks for all your input!

John

Where did you get the oil cooler braces?
Looks like they would work very well and much easier to install.

Hi Larry,
Give Bill at Airflow Systems a call, he has a mount kit for oil coolers.

https://www.airflow-systems.com/oil-cooler-spacers/

Part No:
ASIK-01 Bolt and spacer kit

Cheers

Larry,

You could alternatively make your own from AT6-058 aluminum tubing that came with your kit.

That is what I did before and plan on doing again this time around.

Default Sealing sides of cooler

I've been following this thread with great interest and have adopted the RV10 cooler and mount with butterfly valve/Bowden cable - thank you wirejock and others.

I want to share one possible way of sealing the sides of the cooler...

Any opinions on whether or not they will stay in place?

This is my first post. Thank you all who have helped me with my RV7 build - there are a lot of you.
