oil and cold weather.

ok i guess this cold weather did a number on the "o" rings in the oil cooler, every morning for the past week as soon as i start her up oil would pour out and i mean pour ... bout a quart each time then it would be fine .... so i bit the bullit and fixed it with new seals gaskets o rings fired her up this morning not a drop.... sweeeeet . Messy freaking job though and the ones i took out were hard and brittle, probably 1st time they have ever been replaced.
