Avoiding glycol contam in a new gearbox

After having a new auto box put in last year I am trying to avoid any contamination from glycol. I thought I did read on here what can be done as a precaution.

IIRC, the way is to install a separate oil cooler, thus removing the chance of the shared cooler in the radiator pack somehow cross contaminating.

I can't think of any other issue or solution.

I'd leave it alone Sean. If you had one of the irksome radiators you would have known it by now. The non-thermostatic ATF radiator mod just brought different problems to the party.
