Quick question on oil cooler removal.

I am removing my cooler, what filter should i use now, it looks like there is "2 stubs" in the way of putting an oil filter directly to the part the cooler was hooked to. i hope someone knows what i am talking about. Thanks

Re: Quick question on oil cooler removal.

You need to remove the studs and put normal bolts in there.

Re: Quick question on oil cooler removal.

Maybe I am confused about what you mean, but this is what it is supposed to look like.

Re: Quick question on oil cooler removal.

Use deep well sockets to get the bolts off. You can either use a dremel and cut the extra stud part off or go to the hardware store and find something that matches.

Re: Quick question on oil cooler removal.

Guys, i appriciate the responses. I am a little confused still. Here's what I did. I took off the filter and then just turned that piece that the filter threads to until the whole unit dropped. Now I still have a piece to thread a filter to but there are 2 little stud peices hanging down. I don't think a filter will thread all the way up with them in the way. What do I do?

Re: Quick question on oil cooler removal.

Use deep well sockets to get the studs off. They have a nut portion past the stud that a socket will fit. Once you get them off you can either use a dremel and cut the extra stud part off flush at the top of the bolt or go to the hardware store and find something that matches.

Got it?

Re: Quick question on oil cooler removal.

What year LT1? There are two different cooler designs.

Shoebox has a diagram of one version:

Re: Quick question on oil cooler removal.

Did you remove the through bolt (153 in the diagram)?

Re: Quick question on oil cooler removal.

Both systems come apart the same way. The earlier (93/94) design has a different solid black cooler block with a "Modine" label on it, and the coolant lines are both in a horizontal plane, rather than a vertical plane.
