I would fix the oil cooler first and then replace the tank. Your logic makes sense...no pressure in the cooling system so that could be why you aren't seeing signs of water in the oil. You can...

We have several 6.7 liters in our fleet. I don't know the actual number but it's probably something like 5 Fords and 4 Dodge models. None have more than 25k miles on them yet so it's still early...

Really? Connect a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel rail port at the end of #8 and see if you observe any sort of fuel flow issue. Watch the gauge under load and you should see that #8 is receiving...
