Question on oil cooler change. Oil or not?

Ok I'm stuck. I got the oil Cooiler out. I sucked all the oil out down to the screen. The screen is in great shape but I'm changing anyways. My question is where do I ad oil ? Do I pull the screen and suck out what's under the screen. It seems full touching screen. Or do I leave it and ad oil to the big opening the cooler sits in. I've read trying to figure it out but nothing I read is real clear to me. Also could I just insert new cooler and fill it back up through the oil filter hole? Thanks

You put the new screen on, fill the area under where the oil.cooler will go back on and then seal everything.else back up. Top off the motor with another quart and then fire it up checking the level after it is warm.

Thanks I didn't think I needed to suck out under the screen. I drained my oil so I'll just add the usual 15 qts and watch it. Now if I could just get the damn oil cooler to come out of the housing. Removed all bolts and it won't budge. Been pounding with a 1/2 inch extension and nothing

The O-rings hold it on there pretty tight. Use a 1/2 extension with a socket on the end that's almost the size of the coolant nipple. Block it up on some lumber and have at it. Just be sure all the bolts are out of it or you will damage the housing.
