oil cooler end cap differences.

i purchased an oil cooler from a member for my buddies 97 f350 4x4. the guy stated it was from an 00 and when i went to install it the sucker was wrong! the end caps hold the cooler tube lower than the unit on my buddies truck. ive installed tens of these things and didnt realize thier were different end caps. i install them on ihc chassis trucks and thats what the one i got looks like. all of the f series coolers i have seen the front cap comes stright out and the rear cap holds the tube level with it. on the ihc chassis the front cap drops the tube lower and the rear cap holds it level. when trying to install that on an f series it hits the engine mounts (on a 97 anyway). i tried to explain this to the guy i bought it from but he says it came off an 00 350. so i guess what im asking is do the 99 and up 350's and excursions use the drop down front cap? or is it the cap that comes straight out like the 97's? any help is appreciated.

yeah see how the cooler is raised up over the mount. and the front header comes straight out from the block. on the ihc's and the one this guy sent me the cooler is dropped down and interferes with the motor mount. im just wondering if the 99 up is different. i already asked the guy for a refund but he says he has no use for the cooler.......real nice. the cooler is in great shape but the end caps wont work for a ford i guess unless the later ones are different.

From the looks of it i would say the member got the best of me. He doesnt want to return my money and its obvious it didnt come off an f series. Its likely a motor he had that he didnt realize came out of an ihc chassis.
