Here is a partial pic, it also corrects my memory on the oil flow bungs. The cooler it attached directly to the Traco remote filter mount at the very lower part of the pic.. Pic courtesy Car Craft.

Here's a different angle of how the oil cooler looks in the current Edelbrock '68 Camaro.

That is a much better pic Jon, thank you. Here is a pic of one of my Harrison coolers, part # 8531835. It has the removable top and looks to be similar to what is under that HM made part in the above pic. The ports can be both on the top, or one top and one side. Holman Moody top plate is much nicer and I guess adaptable.

Thanks for posting those pics, Bruce. Do you mind posting a photo of the underside of the lid and also what the open end of the cooler looks like? I assume the opposite end has no provision for inlet or outlet, correct?

Here you go, this is the base and the (very grubby) inside of the end plate. It is a very easy unit to clean with the removable end/top plate. No cutting and welding.
The Holman Moody plate would make it even better.

Judging by the number or top plate retaining bolts/studs, the Yunick/HM unit is probably a bigger item.

Thanks for the photo. Bruce. Yes, I would agree that the Edelbrock unit seems to be a bit different and larger.

I have this NOS Harrison GM cooler available, anyone interested should send a PM/e-mail, yes it`s brand new (never seen oil) and yes it`s expensive.

   I have several receipts showing that Yenko bought Harrison coolers from a flying buddy of Don's , Gary Goss at Ardmore Field, I think in Oklahoma.

I recall Craig Fisher telling me that he drove to the Harrison plant in Lockport, NY to pick
up one or two oil coolers directly. I'm not sure how you show up at a GM plant and pick
up something like an oil cooler and drive away but I am sure he was telling me the truth.

I have a cooler like this for 63 Stingray with proper date code. Also have one on 68 Camaro with unknown date code. Regarding the 63 I also have a document ordering one of these from Lockhart, NY for lightweight Corvette signed by Zora Duntov. I am trying to learn more about these coolers so if there is any more information out there please let me know.
