What is the Oil Flow Direction to Oil Cooler? I see the lines come from above oil filter to the cooler. I want gauge on the return line cooler back to the engine.

I am going to add oil temp, water temp, and volt gauge setup to my 2005 Rhino 660. I figured out the water flow direction, but can’t tell the oil flow direction.

I guess I will bring home our infra-red scanner from work to verify temp of lines, since no answers, or guesses.

The gauge kit I bought had temp gauge, and not a pressure gauge. Not sure oil cooler line would give you a good pressure reading. I could add one later, but don’t have one right now.

I think most guys that run a oil pressure gauge drill a hole and tap it in the banjo bolt on the passenger side of the motor.

After looking in the manual, and Brian's pics in his thread, I think I have it figured out. I ordered an oil pressure gauge, and will install it with the temps gauges, and volt gauge.


Do you think the water temp should be in lines leaving the engine, or back from radiator?

Oil lines for 660, are like this. Right by the carb, and gearshift.

660’s dont have a thermostat, the 450&700’s do. I read several post on it before i instlled it and thats what side everybody puts it on
