Post Oil Cooler O-ring replacement help

I am looking for detailed instructions for replacing the o-rings in my oil cooler. I have an 03 f350 with a 7.3. I have searched the forums for a while and cant seem to get any step by step detailed instructions. I am very mechanically inclined but as with some of the users here this is my first diesel and i want to learn these kinds of things to do my own repairs. I hate paying for something i can do myself. Any help is greatly appreciated.

You just unbolt it, tap the ends off with a rubber mallet (might need a hammer). 2 big orings on each side. Tap the ends back on, bolt back together, good to go. Its really simple.

^^^ pretty much summed it up - your gonna get dirty , drain coolant and oil first , watch for cross contamination , maybe leave oil pan bolt out to remove any coolant that gets in oil when disconnected

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's molded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC on any of it, never will.
Take 3/4 of the info and recommendations on here with a grain of salt
