Keep me updated about the tranny cooler then... Would it be simply a bolt-on minor thing, or would I have to actually start moving the tranny around ( causing more time by removing braceS ? ). How would I know if it'* the clutch pack that'* going ??
Here'* a GM kit that will work on some Bonnevilles:
RPO V92: Trailer Provision: {Aux. Trans Cooler Conversion}

4.128 Guide, Trans Oil Clr Hose #25535190
4.128 Pipe, Trans Oil Clr Upr (To Rad) #25606751
8.962 Hose, Bulk, Trans Oil Clr [3/8”ID X 10’ As Req]
4.128 Clamp #22527587 (QTY: X4)
4.128 Pipe, Trans Oil Clr Lwr #25606752
4.128 Cooler, Trans Oil Aux. #52455503
4.128 Pipe, Trans Oil Clr Upr #25535175
I was thinking of installing it on my 92 SE.

How much do you think all the parts would run me? I think for the tranny cooler.. I might have it done at a shop.. how long do you think it would take them ( so I have an estimate of the labor charge ). Where would the tranny rad be located?? Is there a fan unit for it ?? If not.. maybe after getting it professionally installed.. I splice one of the wires from the front fan and wire it onto an aftermarket fan Just an idea

An aftermarket trans cooler would work too...But would cost less than GM'* version. It mounts to the rad with tie down-like clips (comes in the aftermarket kits) All you need is a few feet of trans cooler line hose & hose clamps.
