Engine oil cooler

Removed engine oil cooler due to a leak which looked be an o-ring as it was leaking between around the shell side o-ring and out to atmosphere. Found a crack in the front housing right at the o-ring connection point. Is it possible that I can purchase parts such as these after market as I am sure that fords price if available will be rather steep. It is a '96 f-250 7.3 I love the damn thing but not sure I can afford to keep it alive at 205,500. Thanks in advance for any help.

I fixed one at the dealership a couple months ago, it was a 96 but the housing wasn't too bad and it was still available at the time. Check into the dealer before completely ruling them out...

Thanks for your reply. I with the dealer front housing $166 rear $241 I just bought them. Figured what the hell the truck is pretty rugged looking but has been a reliable runner and work horse. I am 65 years old and just trying to get back into this diesel thing. I was a Engineman in the service and worked on Cummins, GM, and Fairbanks in Swift boats WPB's and Mike boats in the service was pretty good in my day but ithas been a long time. Thanks again
