I bought an overhauled oil cooler, thinking mine might have a problem, but the oil temp still approached the red line on a 85 degree day. I was told by a reliable source that the AirWolf Remote probably would not make much of a difference, although you up the oil capacity about a quart. I also was told there is a STC for a Bell 47 cooler that does work but the mounting would have to be changed. Comments would be appreciated. Regards, Charlie

Greetings, My Hiller is in for an annual. It was running well, hopefully it will not require anything other than routine inspections. I installed a rebuilt oil cooler, but the temp was still near the red line. That was $675 for a learning experience. I decided to go with the Airwolf remote oil filter( $1300) it is not installed yet, will do it on the oil change. I'll give the details on the purchase and results at a later time, (another learning experience) Flew the Cub this morning. Need to mow the runway and lawn. Regards, Charlie
