6.0 Oil Cooler Rebuild Kit Confusion

I am confused on the Oil Cooler Rebuild kit. Is the kit just a stock replacment? Won't this problem just happen again? Or is the rebuild kit sold with different size jackets ect. Thanks again.

Yes it's just an OEM replacement of the actual liquid to liquid cooler itself. If you don't want it clogged again you need to flush the hell out of your system with the last few flushes containing Distilled/De-ionized water ONLY. Add a coolant filter and you should be good to go. There's a lot of theory as to why they clog but the only hard fact I've seen around here is the 'goo' is NOT silicate, it forms from the coolant on account of the electrical charges in the ionized tap water out of your garden hose. The engine block is after all the main ground in an electrical circuit.

Just as an FYI, from my research (ASTM material is hard to research without paying), the ASTM 3306 standard for the Gold coolant states 250 ppm silicon by weight (max) for a low silicate formula. That is at most 0.01 pounds of silicon (or 0.032 lbs of silicates SiO4) in 4 gallons of concentrated Gold Coolant. That is 1/2 of an ounce of silicates in the entire coolant system.

Srmastertech Talks about the powerstroke cooling systems

Then check the link in the fourth post for an inexact analysis of the goo, but still more concrete than general opinion and uneducated guesses. (Having been a while since I looked at this thread I did some misremembering and now retract my "hard fact" statement....Keep in mind that mistake of mine just goes to prove more than you shouldn't listen to theory composed off of BS sessions)
