    Whats the best way to bypass the oil cooler on a 91 jimmy fullsize cause when my bumper got ripped off some how the cooler got destroyed and i did a trail patch but on the way home the hose broke and i lost a;;; of the oil. Any other good ways i can bypass it for the time being supposed to go play on the 26th. Thanks Denny

    remove the stock oil filter adapter and put a normal one on there that doesn't have provisions for an oil cooler.

    like above .

    remove oil filter.

    remove 2 long allen head bolts.

    remove filter/cooler adaptor.

    remove and install new oil filter adaptor gasket.

    install filter adaptor from non cooler motor with the 2 short bolts.

    install filter and run motor and check for leaks.

    Do you need to keep the cooler for any real reason because mine is going to be in the way of my new winch?

    I just pulled an oil cooler from the '89 sub I'm parting out. PM me if you want it. Its in good shape, would need to be cleaned out before you use it though. The block cracked and pumped some coolant into the oil.
