    okay I'm new at this so be nice, i'm the proud owner a 74 k5 with a built 350,203,44,12bolt. On a resent stop the oil from dripping (i know should not even have tried) tune up I managed to pretzel one of the connector on my engine oil cooler. this cooler is an original factory option on my blazer and is no longer made according to chvey. Could you guys tell me wear i can find some sort of replacement OEM or aftermarket. I think the connector size is 3/8 or 1/2 NPT, any suggestion would be great.

    You could prolly get one from any auto parts store, or they can steer you in the right direction.

    My stock GM oil cooler sprung a leak so I repalced it with a B&M Super Cooler. I got it from Summit. It works great. It comes with 1/2" npt fittings so you can adapt just about ant kind of connector or fitting to it

    I got mine from summit, but they special ordered it. The kit they 'like' to provide comes w/ hose clamps and I'm not comfortable w/ that. However, that cooler now requires 9 (yea thats right 9!!!) quarts of oil!
