Engine and Oil Cooler Back In

5 01 2011

The garage is making progress. They started today and got the engine in and a new external Racimex oil cooler installed. They have built a beautiful base for the cooler, custom-made from a 3 mm thick stainless steal panel. It is mounted underneath the sliding door so that there is still room for an underfloor waste water tank on the other side.

Added June 2012: Here are some more photos and the installation sheet of the manufacturer. Hope this is helpful for anyone out there who plans to install a similar cooler on his or her bus.

War mir gar nicht klar, war so von Werkstatt eingebaut. Auf jeden Fall scheint er erstmal zu funktionieren. Motor bleibt meist um 80°C, bei höheren Tempo bei 100°C. Werde aber beim nächsten Werkstatttermin mal nachfragen.
