Differential oil cooler pump

Looking for recommendations on a decent oil pump to use. I see alot of people using the Tilton but I'm a little weary of using a diaphram pump to pump gear oil. Anyone using a gear style pump?

Andrew.

Turbowerx seems like a good choice. I bought two of the base pumps for my trans and diff... They look like customized Shurflows and come with a nice heat sink.

Scavenge Pumps

Had a look at there website. They have gear pumps but the base model information doesn't say.

I'll give them a shout this week, thanks for the info!

Mocal also has a gear-style pump in addition to their blige-style pumps (that tilton and others rebadge...the Mocal version is probably a rebadge...). It's about $300 IRC.

The Mocal gear style you mentioned you probably saw at racerwholesale... looks just like the Turbowerx Exa-pump and same price too at $399. Re-badge?? Idk...

I did a lot of research on this and the Turbowerx pumps looked the most legit. I just noticed they just added a "mini" Exa-Pump to the line up too.

Do you guys set these on a thermostat switch? Or just run them full time?

This what I'll be using... Cooler with Spal fan and a temp switch installed in the cooler. B&M Part No. 70298 - Hi-Tek Automatic Transmission Cooling System Transmission Coolers

I googled a coupon for Streetside and picked up two for $370 shipped. What a deal.

Be careful if you have the cooler mounted in the back of the car and having a thermostat to turn the fan off. You can sometimes have exhaust gases sucked back into the car if the fan is off!

^^Bigger issue, forgetting to turn the pump on and the nut behind the wheel not checking the idiot light, while the diff cooks!

The professional series down here run the Tiltons, without issue as far as I'm aware. Another common option here is VDO - and they seem reliable - if uncomfortable with something made in Mexico and that style of pump.....although they're probably made in China.

The Tilton is the cheapest option and I can order it from summit.

Haven't figured out where I'm going to locate the cooler. I'm going to fabricate a flat floor undertray with rear diffuser this winter, so ducting the cooler is going to be important. I don't plan to run a fan.
