I'm particularly fond of this Revolution Marine combination cooler:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Revolution-Marine-Severe-Duty-Combo-Cooler-Assembly-/221274500173?pt=Boat_Parts_Accessories_Gear&hash=item3384fcec4d

It's very favorably priced, about 1/2 the price of some competitors, and adequately sized for anything you can think of to cool. It comes with mounting brackets which some don't.

Here's a link to a microfiche on the BAM site. It shows the Merc parts to do what you want and the Merc prices:

But you don't have to do it that way. There are the very same block adapters frequently available on eBay, and there are many more attractive remote oil filter brackets than what Merc offers. They can easily be mounted on the transom.

I hope others can give better suggestions on block adapters and remote filter mounts.

Do you have the remote filter mount?

I just bought one of the Mocal adapter/thermostat housings.
My oil was getting too hot so I installed a cooler, then it didn't get warm enough. This should do the trick.
