I am going to take some out to get pressure tested today
Rob called me looking for 1.
I have talked to copmpanys that will make up new ones if we give them a sample to copy.
no Idea on the price.

I was able to find the proper size thread die and have had good luck rethreading the male fittings if that is all that is wrong with a cooler.

The die that fits the oil cooler couplings is metric 18 x 1.5 threads. Take care to start cutting straight or you'll just recut what was probably cross-threaded.

Has anyone ever found a suitable replacement for the Amphi oil cooler or does anyone have a good one? I just developed a hole in mine, was cruising along in the water, Ron T said, hey your engines smoking! Opened the lid and found an oil covered engine, luckily made it back to shore.
