I really appreciate being able to ask what I suspect are silly questions. As a hobbiest, once the Internet has been exhausted, it's great to be able to throw out questions.

I've transplanted a landrover 300tdi, auto box into my Volvo tgb13. All is well. I've plumbed in a new radiator, intercooler and oil coolers.

Here the question. My oil cooler radiators for both the gearbox and the engine are located higher than the sumps. What stops the the engine running out of oil because it suddenly pumped a whole load into the oil cooler. All I can assume is that the oil pumps have a 1 way valve so that the oil coolers are always full and therefore taken into account when taking the oil levels.

Is that right?

The pumps shouldn't let oil through if they don't turn so it cant drain back. Also your gearbox flow/return pipes will both be below the level of oil in sump so wont let it either.
All engines do have a bit of drain back whilst they are stood still anyway, and the volume of oil in the cooler wont dramatically affect the level in your sump... Smile

Many thanks. Just have to hope I've connected the oil pumps out to the bottom of the radiators now. Pretty sure I have

Thanks again
