Oil Cooler Change

Hey guys, I am new around here but I have been doing a lot of reading and this is a great site. My question is this. I am doing an EGR delete on my truck but at the same time I have decided to change my oil cooler as well. I pulled the cooler out and there is a pool of oil that this sits in. I am not super mechanically inclined but I figured if I drained my oil this would come down....it didn't. How do I put the new cooler in without soaking the new cooler and gaskets with oil? Also, where is the oil strainer screen located? I need help!

the oil screen is located under the oil cooler. you should look for the 6.0 bible (that is what it is call on here) and i think that will help you out tons. i would send it to you but it is too big for me to send out. search 6.0 bible.
hope that helps you out

sorry, forgot to mention that there is a oil reservoir under the oil cooler as well, so the oil sitting there is normal.
trying to get a image up but cant.

You guys are awesome! Thanks so much for the links. I noticed on the picture of under the oil cooler it say's that it holds about a liter but there was no oil in the pic. I would imagine that there must be some way to drain this as well. Anyway, I put the new oil cooler back on but it pushed some oil out before I tightened it back on, I hope that it will be ok. Time to put the parts back on and hope that it no longer smokes!

well, the pic is probably of a motor in a lab and for display only to show the parts for the making of the book.
that would be my guess
