transmission cooler strainer

Can anyone show me a picture of what I should be cleaning out regularly on the transmission cooler? Have not been doing this and cannot find a good picture of what to look for. I have 2004 X30 with MCX and I believe Hurth tranny. Thanks.

here you go - x30 has a vdrive - undo the water hoses on v-drive as well and clean out there as well.

It's probably located on the starboard side of your boat. Either then or lower starboard/front of the motor.

Thanks Tim, this is awesome. Great photo and captions. Out at the lake tonight but not doing this in the dark, for sure first thing in the morning. We have weeds in the lake but am never near them. I am sure it is getting some crap building up in it though. No overheating issues yet thankfully. You guys are great as always.

Might be aware of this already, but if there's debris in the cooler, it will be mashed up against the screen inside. So you'll need to fish around in there with your fingers to pull everything out.
