    Default Lockhart Oil Cooler IN vs. OUT

    I have an old shovel head oil cooler. Does it have designated in vs. out side for the oil lines?

    I believe that looking at it from the front of the bike.
    the one on the left is inlet.
    the original ones just came with a cover with instructions to use
    it below 55-60 degrees outside temp
    later models had a valve to reroute the oil when cold
    I don't use a valve I just cover mine.just a choice up to you

    Hot days here in South Texas. We've had no winter. The occasional cold day here and there. Pretty much riding weather every day. Thank you for the reply. Got my my hard tailed sporty fired up, oil circulates fine.

    The inlet and outlet don't matter unless you have a cooler with a built in thermostat, which you don't. They are just opposite ends of the same tube.

    Agreed.
    I've been screwing with them for years. They're a simple radiator, unless you have one of the new fangled kinds with a thermostat. The thermo is real obvious, you'd know if you had one.
