Has anyone ever run a bypass line from a 12d to run a filter or a oil cooler on tractor? Has anyone ever run a cooler on the hydrostatic trannys? Im, knew to these makes and models so I don't know if it's possible but if it is I'd like to do it cooler is better

I'm not sure about adding an oil filter to the engine.

 

Bolens did offer a hydro cooling kit for the HT series Large Frames, and it was standard on the 2389S model HT23.

 

I'm guessing that it wouldn't be too hard of a job to put a hydro cooler on a 1250.

I don't think that type of engine is pressurized to allow an oil filter you may need a pump.

Well the engines are oil slinger style engines so no there's not any pressure an external pump would be required and to Answer as to why I don't know why I thought of it I just did..... running cooler is never a bad thing
