6.0L oil Cooler re-assmebly problem

So, I followed the advice and replaced my oil cooler after temp deltas of >20 degrees were seen. Now I am putting everything back together and I have this spring which I can not remember where it goes. Need some help from the experts here since my manual is not much help at all for showign exploded views.

I have attached an image of the spring below. (I think)

Any ideas?

Thanks guys,
Jason

Not sure but srmastertech on youtube has videos of him rebuilding an oil cooler. Maybe watch it and see where it came from? Hope that helps.

Not recalling any springs in the oil cooler. Are you doing a blue spring upgrade by chance but that doesnt look to be the right length for a fuel pressure reg spring either.

Could be the spring from the top of that standpipe in the oil filter housing if it was broke or is broke?

I need to do the blue fuel spring upgrade, but that is a much smaller spring.

Would this spring be inside the oil filter standpipe? What is that for?

Might be the spring for the oil filter bypass in the top of the black plastic tube in the oil filter housing. If the top of that doesnt have a little spring loaded button then you need to replace that standpipe in the center of the oil filter. If the button is missing then the bypass is broke.

Ok, thanks. I will go take a look. Anyone have an exploded view of the oil filter assembly? And the fuel filter would be good. I want to make sure I have the fuel regulator spring onthe correct side of teh brass fitting.

Nope, I still the the spring inside the oil filter standpipe with a black ball thing on the top. So that is not this missing spring.....

Any other ideas?

That is the problem....I don't remember where this spring came from. I should have had a better system for keeping track of where the parts were coming from instead of putting them all into one box.....lessons learned!
