Shield fins from damage.

Nice, straight fins are what your HMMWV needs for the oil cooler to work right. Bent fins stop air flow through the oil cooler and radiator, overheating the engine and transmission.

The fins get bent because mechanics lean or crawl onto the oil cooler when they pull engine PM or adjust belt tension.

Round off the edges and paint the board to prevent splinters. Stencil NO STEP on each side of the board.

To use the shield, remove the eyehook seals and slip the shield over the two lifting rings, laying it flat on the oil cooler frame. The rings will hold the shield in place.

Never use the shield while the engine is running because it stops air flow and causes engine overheating.

Be sure to replace the eyehook seals after using the shield.
