After much cursing and swearing, got both ends of the oil cooler off the motor. Did this because the cooler was leaking coolant. New O rings and some careful use of a pair of pipe clamps pressed everything together. Bolted it back on with new gaskets. All Ford parts. New upper and lower radiator hoses and new serpentine belt added. Upper hose now goes around the serpentine belt. Put in distilled water to flush system but water pours out of the motor near the oil filter end of the cooler. Gaskets are in right and bolts are tight. No leaks around the cooler tube. So what did I screw up? Truck is an '02 w/200k miles.
