I need to get an oil cooler, before it gets hot for sure, but looking at the Jagg cooler pix, I noticed it just doesn't seem right that my oil filter is right there in the wind and can't shed any heat. So, I found something I might try to get it to do so, if only a little.
I bought one of these on Ebay for $10 and $6 for shipping, it says fits any 2 7/8 or 3" filter, so it won't be tight on my filter which measures 2 7/8, but it can't have fins on the backside anyway, too close to the engine, I'll have to cut them off or slice the whole thing in half lengthwise and bend it inward some so it would be a 'C' shape smaller in diameter than the filter body, and slip it over the end, and have a sproing tight fit, and maybe with a couple of kick ass little magnets to hold it in place. Another idea would be to slice the center section out of the side where the tightening bolts are, then drill holes for two small Allen bolts side to side there that would make it a tight fitting clamp, spray it wrinkle black, maybe even square off and polish the ends of the fins to match my engine, and switch to a black filter from chrome. If I liked the anodized detail they come in ruby red too, but wrinkle black would actually cool a lot better. Hell it might actually work a little. $10 worth anyway.
Mine cost $10, I don't know how well it works,
it gets too hot to touch and it's in the wind.
