ACCESSORIES
for Marine Transmissions

   A. Fluid Coolers:

   All marine transmissions, except for a few small manual transmission application's, require fluid coolers.
   The selection of the proper cooler is critical to prolonging the life of your transmission by keeping it cool.
  

    Coolers come in many styles and sizes.  The two most common are the straight through, below left, and
   "U" shape coolers normally used on Crusader engines, below right.  The "U" type has two sections, one
   for transmission cooling and the other for engine oil cooling. "U" types come with a 45 and a 90 degree
   stub.  Tube bundle length is 9 inches.

    Standard low pressure straight through coolers come in diameters from 2" to 3" and bundle lengths of
    6", 9" and 12".  Both push-on hose fittings from 3/4" up to 2-1/2" and NPT screw in from 1/2" up to 2".
    The oil connection is 3/8" NPTF on 2" diameter bundles and 1/2" NTPF on 3" bundle coolers.

    High pressure coolers are available in 2" diameter up to 5" diameter and lengths from 9" to 15".

   B. Damper Plates:

        Damper plates, also called flex plates and coupling plates, are mounted on the engine flywheel and
        couple the engine rotation to the marine transmission input shaft.  They do not act as clutch plates as
        they turn the input shaft as long as the engine is running.
        Styles available include spring loaded center, rubber dampened center and rubber bushing center.
        Information required to order a new damper plate:
        Part number off of old plate if available, or engine make and HP and transmission model.
