2nd Oil Cooler Leaks...Is it just me?

Unread post by GasDaddy140 » Sun May 14, 2017 4:09 pm


I thought that I was on-my-way for start-up, set-up...and then my replacement (supposedly tested) 12 row oil cooler failed during the drill motor oil test. I have another oil slick on my work table. Is it just my bad luck or what? I've got new seals. Both oil coolers leaked from the lower left corner. There was no trail of oil from the fitting or seals. It's back to the oil cooler problem now :think: Can these things be fixed?

I found a place that sonic cleans them and pressure tests them. I just had 2 of them done. That might be an option for you as well.
