The Fiat 124 Spider I bought last year has an add on oil cooler for the auto transmission.

Would like to mount this cooler a little better. It sits between the grill and the radiator (engine coolant cooler). In the pic the radiator is removed.
The overall dimensions are approximately 13 by 5 by 0.75 inches.
Since the cooler has no mounting ears, I am thinking of a rubber strap looped through each of the three U bends in the pipe and attached to a vertical post to be mounted between the cross members below and above the cooler.
Open to your learned and practical suggestions!
Appreciate your help, Hendrik

We do this all the time on drag cars.

You may have to fab something up to mount it to, like two stout brackets on each side. Then we put 3/8 or 1/2 inch thick foam (dense, not soft) between the mounts and the cooler. Then use very heavy zipties to hold it down. Never had one break yet.

Good thing it's not a ford truck or you would have to put it under the intake manifold.

When they come in a kit, they have little rubbers that you slip plastic wire ties thru and secure directly to radiator.Mark

Go to a place that sells those kind of coolers and ask for a Hayden # K210 or Derale # 13010. It"s the kit you want with the rubber foam pads and the wire tie type mountings. Transmission supply places will have them.
