I've finally eviscerated the twin oil coolers and lines then installed the Laminova heat exchanger to cure my oil line recall problem.
The first thing that had to go was the sandwich plate with the thermostat. Good thing that Mocal made the one that Lotus uses so a MOC-SP1 was a direct replacement. The center thread was re-used and the one supplied was not used. I also got the Mocal 1/2" BSP x -10 fitting - 1 Pair for the sandwich plate. I got those from here. Sandwich Plates - Mocal Sandwich Plates
I got 5 each of the 90-degree fittings and 1 each straight in AN-10 size from here
Red and Blue Reusable Fittings
I got a 10-foot section Aeroquip SS line from here
Stainless Steel Braided Hose - -10 Aeroquip Stainless Steel Braided Hose
This is heat exchanger that Lotus uses in their kits with 32-mm push-on fittings and -10 AN thread-on for the oil side.
Laminar Flow Oil to Water Heat Exchangers - Mocal Laminar Flow Oil to Water Heat Exchanger- Medium with Push-On Hose Water Connections
All that is needed for the engine bay is two more hose clamps to hold in the heat exchanger in the water return line. Just cut an 8" section out of the hose, and away you go!
Up front, the Lotus kit also includes a ProAlloy, 3-pass radiator...here is a single pass radiator in the same dimensions that I've used.

Up in the right, rear wheel well is where I routed the OEM "T" and check-valve for the Accusump. Never mind the drop light...you don't see the drop light at the top of the engine...
Just so you know who designed the head on these cars...
Here is where the heat exchanger resides...looking forward at the firewall.
I tried to get a better shot of the sandwich plate...but...
ALSO!!!! This is a big gotch yah!!! The inlet and the outlet of the Mocal thermostat sandwich plate is backwards from the Mocal plain sandwich plate.
And here is looking deeper up through the engine, off to the right side where the two -10 AN lines go up to the right rear wheel well.
