In radiator trans cooler

I have looked around and could not find my answer. I have a very small leak at one of the trans cooler lines that go into the radiator. To be specfic the one on the driversside. My lines are not rusty at all so it is most likley the fitting. I know that there is a thermo valave that sends fluid to the cooler only when it hits temp. Well it has been cold here in the midwest and I have not towed in a while. I am worried that once it opens it will be bad. I talked to my Ford diesel guy and he tossed me a newer fitting and gave me the tool part #. Question is can you just not use the radiator cooler, and just run a larger oil to air cooler? Like one of the nice plate ones that B&M makes. My guy is a by the book PSD/ Ford guy, so he was not 100% sure.

Let me know.

If your talking about bypassing the factory cooler and installing a aftermarket you should have no problem! Just make sure the cooler is big enough for your application!
