Oil cooler line question
I have a 2012 Hammer S. Have the 2012 shop manual.
According to the shop manual, the LOWER hose on the oil cooler (also the INNER hose on the left side of the engine) takes HOT oil from the engine to the oil cooler.
Also, the UPPER hose on the cooler (also the OUTER hose on the left side of the engine) takes COOL oil from the cooler and returns it to the engine.
HOWEVER, on the Victory Parts Fische the LOWER hose is described as "engine in". This seems to contradict the shop manual. To me "engine in" means from cooler to engine. While manual states engine to cooler.
UPPER hose in fische described as "engine out". Again seems to contradict manual. "Engine out" to me means from engine to cooler.
MY QUESTION: based on actual experience, which oil hose, UPPER or LOWER, takes HOT engine oil to the cooler? i.e. which source is correct: shop manual or fische? Again Freedom 106 engine.
