Yeah, that's a great point.Looks like the oil cooler on a Jaguar I once had.
You can run a transmission too cool.
This is the way to do it! I used to have mine mounted to a couple pieces of angle iron running the width of the radiator. I pulled it all out this year after remembering Dariusz's car and mounted it just like this. Should have done this from the beginning. There is more than enough support there to handle it.Here is what I have, right in front of the rad, fairly civilized install hanging off of the rad support yoke.
Don't have a temp sensor installed today, but I do run a deep pan on the 727. Car has been through numerous burnouts and pretty good amount of load (4k, 9.5" converter). Can't say I have spotted any issues yet.
I really should toss a temp sensor in, the pan even has a threaded mounting hole for it...just missing a nice spot to install the gauge inside the cabin.

Totally...make no mistake, I take no credit for this genius placement...much sharper minds have produced that, but I will readily admit to taking advantage of as much of that design as possible (such as the lower supporting bracket (see items #10 and #11 on the factory install schematic below).That center bar is designed to support the transmission cooler and engine oil cooler, for police cars.
