    According to the Parts Manual, Plate H-Section A the 62 Le Mans has a rectangular oil cooler with different hoses and oil cooler than the 1725 Alpine. Does anyone have photos or diagrams of the oil cooler installation particularly behind the grille. Help would be appreciated.

    There are 4 dimples on the panel above the radiator, 2 on each side, inboard of the hinges. These are the bolt locations that hold brackets under the panel that support the square cooler. They are angled to allow the cooler to be upright. I changed my 8 row cooler to 13 rows and modified my brackets to tilt the cooler to give room to allow twin electric fans to fit in the space in front of the radiator as well. Unfortunately I don't have photos of the old setup but will look in my archive tomorrow.

    This photo shows where the cooler sets. This is a cooler used to make sure the brackets set right. The hoses go thru the opening in front of the booster 101_0042.JPG
