oil coolers

I have been lookin at oil coolers on ebay and seen one where they just change the main part in the middle then clean the housing and replace all the gaskets. Do you think this is ok or should I look at a whole new one?

the oil cooler rebuild kit is a good deal, there is absolutely NO reason to replace the cover or buy a "whole new unit"

You are getting more bang for your buck buying the one that has been rebuilt. The covers dont go bad its the internals that do, so someone please tell me why you need a full replacement unit.

to the original poster;this is correct 100%. you do not need a "new" cooler. rebuilt is fine. FCDP corrected my oil cooler issues one week ago.
