Transmission cooler

I have a 1997 NAS D90 with Automatic Transmission. I am having a damaged oil cooler line replaced. In removing the old lines from the cooler assembly the fittings were stripped. At first I was told that the cooler would need to be replaced (Part # FTC5360). But both of the big guys are out of stock and the item is back-ordered with no ETA!?

My question is does anyone sell or fabricate the fittings that attach to the cooler itself. I'd rather not have to replace the whole thing even if it was available but it's not.

Thanks in advance for any help or advice.

If you want the cooler LRSeries has it for around $165 plus shipping if my calculations are good. Rimmerbros has it for $210 plus shipping.

The actual unit is in the shop, but here's the link on RN

If you expand the picture you can see the two round fittings. Thanks for looking!

Well Marc, one fitting is useable but the other was stripped. Probably like yours, due to corrosion. I did check the fitting on the right and it threads into a cooler line ok but the left one is no good. Sorry!

As you can see from the picture, I need an entire cooler but I have an alternative I can use for now! Lol

You can get an after market one for $40. You will have to modify the lines to make it work. I had to do that on mine, when I added the Safari Gard brush bar.

Bad thing about the stock cooler is it's down below the pull of air from the engine fan. So when you need it most, slow & off road, it's effectiveness is almost nill. Going down the highway, it's fine, wheelin', it's almost worthless. An aftermarket in front of the AC condenser is a better location.

That's them! Damn...I'm getting pretty close!

Thanks so much for checking Jeff. At least the cooler in the pic actually needs to be replaced!

LR Part FTC5360

So the Transmission Cooler (Part No FTC5360) is officially out of stock and back-ordered until at least December. I tried RoversNorth Atlantic British as well as LR Series and Rimmer brothers.

Does anyone know where I could get a new one or a high quality used one with the fittings intact?

Thanks in advance for the help.
