"Yellow Jacket Cooler" Cools Irrigation Engine
Other coolers on the market have small diameter copper tubes that handle well water but they're often damaged by rocks or sand pumped by the well. My big pipe cooler should last for years even where the water is corrosive.
All it took to build was a welder and cutting torch and about 10 hrs. of labor. It's about 5 ft. long and will cool an engine with up to 150 hp. Higher horsepower engines will require a slightly longer or larger diameter cooler. (Weldon Gilleland, P.O. Box 2132, Uvalde, Texas 78802 ph 830-278-3844)
