Default Oil cooler gasket

Hey guys, wondering if anyone has attempted to locate a replacement gasket for the oil cooler. Its the one that goes in between the oil cooler adapter and engine. I called up my local ford dealer and he said that they no longer make it and he could not find one anywhere. Also anyone had any luck fixing the leaky o-ring in the oil cooler. I know there was a write up on v8sho.com but the o-rings mentioned do not seem to do the job. Thanks in advance!

5 years and the O rings mentioned in this link are still sealed tight.

There WAS a problem with the teflon rings mentioned in this thread -

You DON'T want the white ones.

Looks like the poster is looking for the adapter to block not cooler to adapter O rings.

I may have one.

I guess I need to see what it looks like to be sure. The gaskets I have are not identified.

The last new ones I had came in complet gasket sets from ford. A year ago they were $1350 I reuse them if they are not damaged spray it down with Hi-Tack after cleaning.

Default Is the 3.2L Oil Cooler Similar?

Hey Guys,

I am using a 3.2L from a '93 in a project car, and a lot of oil is leaking from between the block, and the oil cooler. I went to the link in the above, and the part with the 30mm nut looks very similar to what I have. Can it be removed the same way and a new gasket installed?

Thanks!

Joey
