 Recently given a 2003 Kawasaki 550 mule.

The previous owner was done with and said it would never run again.

I have rebuilt the wiring harness and solved the not running issue.

? have any of you tried adding an engine oil cooler to this machine.

There are 2 threaded plugs on the filter housing I was wondering if I can tap oil cooler into them.

Hi

I have 01 550, those plugs are for  oil pressure gauges. I have not heard of anyone putting a cooler on it. Does it make any sounds like clicking when trying to start? I'm not saying that i couldn't be done though.

 If you need any parts go to kawasakipartshouse.com

I have a repair manual with several trouble shooting pages, if you like i can send some screens shots of them to you.

That sounds like it might be a good idea on an air cooled engine. But I don't know if that would work. If you could fit one of those kits that relocate the oil filter. That might give better flow. I'd carefully document the engine temperature before doing anything. That way you'll know how well it works.
