Ex Mod oil cooler to V8 110?

Hi everyone,

I have been reading a lot about oil cooler lines on the newer Defenders but have not seen anything about the older 110's. I just acquired an 1983 V8 110 and it came with what looks like an Ex Mod Oil Cooler? I think the previous owner was going to put it on the truck but never got around to it. Can someone please tell me if this is possible? I am not sure it the cooler base is a direct bolt on, can I just remove my existing base and attach this? IF not I plan to use just the cooler itself and buy a sandwich plate. The problem with that is I do not know if the line fittings are the same as the ones found on the newer defenders so I can just buy the fittings from ECR. Thanks for any input.

That's an interesting part, but I'm not sure its for a v8 unless it bolts to the bottom of the oil pump housing. Moreover, I'm not sure its really necessary. IIRC the only military trucks that had v8's were for very heavy loads and this was probably intended for desert conditions.

When I put the 4.6 in my 110 I used a sandwhich plate and an aftermarket cooler just a little smaller than that one. I attached it to the supports in about the same place and ran the hoses underneath away from any heat source. Since your application is different than the later Defenders, any hydraulic shop should be able to make up custom hoses for you to go from the cooler to the sandwhich plate. I do tow a trailer so I thought that it would be a good idea to add the cooler on my 110.

That oil filter housing/cooler base looks the same as the one fitted to my Ex-Mod 2.5 NA diesel engine, so I suspect that is where it came from. Don't know if it will bolt up to a V8 though.

Yeah, all military 90 & 110s (well, 99% of them) have the oil coolers, with the 2.5 diesel.

Just looked through my mil parts book, and it doesn't list one on the V8 (but that doesn't mean some wern't fitted... my parts book only covers certain contracts; specifications changed between contracts)

But you could just use the sandwich plate as used on the 3.9 V8, it just bolts behind the oil filter housing, then run the pipes to the front cooler.

Thanks everyone. That saves me a lot of trouble. Now I know not to remove the base plate of my oil filter off. Can anyone verify if the fittings on the cooler itself is the same as the ones found on the radiators of the newer defenders? Thanks in advance
