put new oil cooler on today!!!

i went with the ford oil cooler again cause i got a good deal on one, started yesterday around 11 or so and stopped around 6 after tearing everything downand putting the the oil cooler back in. then today started around 9 and finished every thing around 2 and truck was running again... the delta before i changed it was around 23 degrees and today after driving for a couple of hours it was no more then 2-3 degrees apart.
thanks to eric schnoor for helping me haha you are the man....

Yes sir, put a coolant filter on it.

Did you get a chance to cut open the old oil cooler?

A coolant filter will filter out casting sand and rust scale, but it won't help with silicate drop out. This is where a ELC silicate free comes in handy.

It's a good feeling to do your own work, not only did you save money, but you get familiar with the motor.

Question, if you use a silicate free ELC and you use a coolant filter would that be enough to prevent another oil cooler failure of the original ford oil cooler? I was looking hard at going the Bullet Proof Diesel route next spring along with ARP headstuds but the only gripe I have with the BPD oil cooler is it takes out the factory fog lamps. As someone who suffers from night blindness I really need those extra lights on roads I'm not familiar with know what I mean?

That's not true. They really don't sell the bumber mount anymore and the condenser mount doesn't interfere with the fog lights in any way. THE BPD is the only way to be 100% sure that you have put the problem behind you.

Coolant filter is good insurance-it's a bypass design, so at any given time it is only filtering around 10 percent of the coolant-it's not a substitute for using GOOD elc coolant and keeping it clean, but it will keep rust flakes, casting sand and other particulates in the system from staying there.
