Default Lister 12/2 30kw koler generator head COOLING The Lister?????

I have a old lister it has about 3 hrs total run time so no build up of rust in the cooling ducts.I run my car on WVO and my truck.Would like to try to use the WVO as a cooler for the lister and as the oil gets hot 180* or so, would then run the oil thru a dieselcraft centrifuge to clean it for fule use .may then use hot oil to run the lister I have the set up on a cart so it is moveable.I need some ideas on how the set up would look .Anybody doing this??
Thanks Jeff

Hmmm diabolical thinking, I like it. Can't wait to see the input on this. My initial thought is great idea but how do you cool the oil ? with a radiator ? I had thought about a "tank within a tank" for my tank cooled 16/2 that would allow the oil to be preheated by the water. just tossing around ideas here, remember if you have an open cooling system the oil wont lose any heat by evaporation
