aint got one of those at mo buddy, the left hand side is fine tail pipe, its the right hand one is is to much to the left, it look like the silencer is touching in the last pics so it mite be that holding it up, the exhast sits quite close the rear brake calipers though ! about an inch or so gap,

thats plenty of space, as the heat is drawn towaords the rear when going foward.

the mex'y bracket looks like you may have to remove this.

i can't remember what they are for as i had one on my mexy bug years ago.

dunno, could do as it will warm u quicker, reason i bought one is put 36 hp fanshround on and it doesnt have flaps in it so thought the only other way to get the engine to warm up quicker is to put a thermostat in line on the external oil cooler to allow the oil to warm up quicker, suppose its good on any purpose becasue the external oil cooler is only used when it neeeds to be, so on a cold winters day you mite over cool without a thermo stat, and if its 30 degrees in july the extra cooler will kick in if needed, you could get fan aswell and get that to kick in 10 degrees after the inline oil thermostat aswell, so say the inline oil thermo opens at 60degrees you could get the fan on the oil cooler to kick in at 70Degrees ( example ), i think you can get programable inline thermos to operate the electric fans Very Happy

I can't run an electric fan dude as I am on 6v, not sure if I can get a thermostat to run via the oil cooler over a certain temperature and just to the remote filter when below.

went to see chris today to give him the oil filter and mount and see how the bug was going, seems to be going great, chris has jettted them etc , sorted fuel lines out, timing. tappets . rear hub seal and cleaned all the brake out and new plugs etc.

video of it running throught most the vid i had my thumb over the mic so sounds quite .



just needs the oil cooler mount and filter and chris to make some proper lines up and fitting and then finally tune it on the rolling road Very Happy Very Happy

i got a remote oil cooler on the frid ....mounted up front on the beam .......


Don't ask me why ? ...it just came like that ......IMO its a stupid idea ...not only do you have really long hoses running under the vehicle right to the front ........but the extra drag on the oil pump is rediculous .........I would try to keep the cooler near the rear as possible if I were you dude
