oil cooler problem
I just took the oil cooler off our 97 that is in the process of getting parted out to keep the other two running and put it on my 94 powerstroke. The 94 had the bypass that keeps falling out and it was leaking pretty bad.
I rebuilt it with new o rings and gaskets from aliant and got it on no problem. Torqued it just like the book said and all was perfect for about a week till yesterday morning. It was snowing and in the teens out when I started it. Oil started slowly leaking out of the front header gasket. It was torqued to 24 foot pounds like the book said but I crawled underneath and gave it just the tiniest bit of a turn on both bolts and it seems to have stopped.
Both surfaces were as clean as if they were new so I'm wondering if I should replace the gasket again in the front? I didn't use any sealer and shouldn't have to on that type either but maybe I should have. I don't know.
What do ya'll think?
