    Does the K2500 absolutely have to have an oil cooler?

    The reason I'm asking is; Mine leaks like a screen door on a submarine, and I thinking about taking it off and putting a regular filter on.

    Lol, it's hard to think of things like that in the middle of June.

    I wiped all of the excess oil off and started it up.

    The leak is coming from cooler gasket.

    The parts places don't have one.

    I've got the material to make one, but I don't have all of the old gasket.

    Is their a website where I can find a diagram of the gasket?

    It's on a 93 K2500 5.7 liter 350

    I found a pic of the gaskets on www.pickproparts.com

    I had the material to make them, and made some pretty good ones, if I must say so myself. No leaks, good oil pressure.
