Can you explain why big blocks need a cooler?

With the location of the steering box behind the K-member and wrapped in engine and header pipes in combination with the very short fluid circuit the system will build heat. The pump itself generates heat when compressing the fluid. The short fluid circuit does not provide adequate time for the heat to dissipate before it is re-pressurized and heated again. This building heat results in a breakdown of the fluid which will turn into loss of assist. Adding a cooler provides the needed time for the fluid to cool off and provides a consistent feel at the wheel.

The hydroboost set up does increase the length of lines and time it takes for the fluid to get back to the pump and can aid in cooling the fluid however a cooler is always a good idea as reduced temperatures increase the life of all components involved in the system.

I am planning to install your 800126 steering box in my 1971 Dodge Charger Super Bee. This will be replacing the stock, profusely leaking, Power Steering gearbox and associated system. My car has a 383 Magnum engine with long tube exhaust headers.

I will be installing your 800126 steering box, 800338 Big Block Pump kit, 925113 Hose Kit Saginaw. In addition, I will be using the Bergman Auto Craft 2136 Mopar direct fit coupler that is designed specifically to be used with your steering box, so I don't have to shorten or modify my stock steering column.

From what I've already read in this section, I should install one of your Power Steering Cooler kits as well. Cooler kit 925125 is 2.5" x 9" and kit 925126 is 5" x 9". I'll probably go with the bigger of the two coolers. Any suggestions of where I should locate the cooler in a 1971 Charger?

Do you mind if I create a thread, in this Borgeson section, covering the progress of my installation, once it begins?

You should place the cooler in an area where it will be away form engine / exhaust heat and get some decent airflow. In front of or behind the radiator will work. Feel free to create a thread for all to track any questions and answers that may arise.
