I've already purchased the Earls sandwich style oil cooler and don't think it will mount on my 351 block with a mechanical fuel pump. It appears the thermostat is designed to mount pointing forward of the car. This can't happen due to the placement of the fuel pump. It does not appear to be able to point upwards and will hit the lower portin of the head. I think it might be able to point downward if I use 45 degree angled AN fittings so that I will avoid hitting the 9 quart oil pan. Anybody else have this problem?

Many thanks gents,
-Travis

Thanks, I'll exchange the straight AN fittings for the 90 degrees you describe and give it a try.
