help-removing an oil cooler on 95 F250 PSD

I have a 95 F250 TD I recently blew one of the o rings in the oil cooler and now I have to remove the oil cooler to fix it at a shop(the truck is blocked in by a 6 foot snow bank, and it is still very cold). First question is does anyone know what the torque specs are for the bolts on the oil cooler. I have PBBlasted them and they still won't budge? Second, do I need to drain all the oil and coolant out of the engine before I take the oil cooler off? Third is there a better way to get at the oil cooler other than taking the front driverside tire off and going in through the wheel well? Does anyone have any tricks for doing this? thanks~ Jenn

Here's a bump. Luckily, I have never had to deal with an oil cooler.

I'd drain the oil/coolant. Even though I did it still made a wonderous mess of things.

There are 5 total bolts to take of, be careful and don't strip them.

definatly drain the oil and coolant first. I had to slightly bend the steel fuel lines to get the front of the cooler loose, other than that it was a pretty simple job.

I have to tackle this job on my 95 this weekend. Can you just pull on the adapters on the end of the tube to separate it or do you need a special tool? Then just clean all surfaces, grease up O rings and press it back together? Do you need any sealant on the metal and blue rubber gaskets?
