Default Reefer UltraCool install (upgrade) pics on 2011 SG 103

Just wanted to document the process I went through to upgrade my ride's oil cooler from stock to the Reefer.

Only odd tool (which isn't that odd) I needed to get was an 11/16th's Allen wrench needed to remove original oil cooler adapter plate. You'll also need your usual array of torx and allen wrenches.

The kit also comes with a flare nut crow's foot wrench (pretty low quality) but it worked after banging it with a hammer to fit it on the end of a 3/8's extension.

Hope this helps someone.

Thanks,

J

Pics 1, 2 & 3 is just the stock set up and kit. Also, if upgrading the 103's oil cooler, be sure to mention that so they include the HD Part oil cooler adapter.

Then take apart the oil cooler adapter that came in the kit and begin to remove the original oil cooler.

There's two large Torx bolts below the cooler that hold the original cooler to the frame and the 11/16th's Allen wrench is used to remove the adapter that the oil filter connects to.

A pair of pliers can be used to remove the clips the hoses are attached to.

Now you are ready to install the new adapter.

Pics are what it looks like clean, the old adapter and the new adapter (with red thread sealant) that they will send to you, the adapter installed and then using the plate they send you and attached with the bolt/adapter they send you.

Now you can put on the gasket and join the two parts of the adapter together with the 5 allen bolts.

Now the cooler lines and the wonderful crows foot.

Of course assemble them wet. Add a little motor oil to the threads and flare nut face.

Run them under the frame.

The bolts used to to attach the cooler and fans to the new plate are also Allen wrenches.

The left one that attaches to the oil cooler adapter goes to the top fitting on the oil cooler and the right one goes to the lower one on the oil cooler.

After hoses are attached, the electrical wiring part is pretty straight forward and the instructions that come with the kit are pretty clear.

Seems like it will take about a half a quart of oil once you're done and buttoned up.

Good luck and let me know if you have any questions.

I installed an Ultra Cool 2 weeks ago on my 120R, much cleaner install than the Jagg.

Does the L.E.D light come on only when the oil cooler fans kick on?
