Do any of you guys run a fan-type Remote Transmission Cooler? If so, What Brand and Part Number?

I have a Rossler TH400 with a Chance 5500 RPM 9" Converter. 1970 442 Car weighs approx. 3500 lbs.

I've spoken to Derale and they only gave me "1" Option; their # 65861....They said I need to run this Cooler and that's it.....no other choices. I would try to go with this Cooler, but it is 8-1/2" tall!...Having a tough time of finding a way to mount it under the rear of the Car, without it "hanging down" too low.

Any thoughts/recommendations would be appreciated.

That's a biggin but nice. Don't know if it's 5 bills nice.
I'd run through your radiator and get the biggest cooler you can fit preferably in front of the radiator if possible.
Stay away from tube style coolers.
I had something close to this (B&M 70268 B&M SuperCooler Oil Coolers | Summit Racing ) 3400lbs, 427 BBC, 13:1 compression, 4500 stall and I never had a problem driving anywhere on the street. Today knowing more I'd put a bigger cooler on the car but at the time it's what I had.

Thanks for the info....... Same thoughts about the Derale @ $ 500...I have a New Northern Radiator, but it doesn't have Transmission Cooling Porting in it. I wanted to "isolate" the Trans. Temp. away from the Radiator, so I could do a better job of keeping the Engine Cool...Had lots of hot days in the past, where I was "high tailing it" back to the Pits with a 220+ Engine Temp....Not fun....A little stressful... Had a B&M in front of the Radiator for years back in the 80's with a 3800 stall Converter, but this time, as I have much higher HP (760) and Stall, I want to make sure I do the most I can to keep the fluid cool.

In that case I'd do the biggest you can in front with a fan. I never like when customers mount the cooler under the car, jmo. Heat is an auto trans worst enemy.
I'd have a gauge to monitor it.

I'm not real crazy about the Cooler being "under"(y) the car either...Too many chances for rocks, leaks, etc. Thanks for your advice.

If you're just going to the track it's one thing. But if you're going to drive it on the street it's another. I've got a few who have 5500 stalls who drive theirs on the street with no problem.

This is my setup and works well. Dual flat plate coolers plumbed in parallel, mounted about four inches ahead of the radiator (radiator removed in this picture). I do run a temp gauge and have no issues keeping temps in check (below 160) track or street. I’m running -6 lines out and in. This is with 1000+hp NA 600ci with a 6200 converter in front of my glide. I change fluid/filter once a year and fluid looks/smells/tastes new still.

Best we’ve used is a stacked plate made by DANA marketed under the Tru-Cool Long brand. Model H7B or next smaller M7B. Take a look and see what you think!

i run a stacked plate cooler under my car. it might be 32 or 40 rows. then i added a 12" spal fan to it and made a little box to divert air to it while moving. 3 drag weeks and just finished Midwest Drags with it like this and towing a little trailer.

This is the one you want

The one you listed is a low pressure drop cooler. They sell this cooler without the thermal bypass. Myself I am not sure I would ever install that bypass (unless I lived in sub zero temps) These are great coolers-good quality. They sell them without the bypass.
