You can buy the rebuild kits from riffraff or dieselorings.
Messy, but something you can do yourself. New coolers are
very pricey, the rebuild kits are around $60.

Your oil cooler should have nothing running to it except for the block heater cord on the back oil cooler cap... You can use an oil cooler from a '94.5-'03.

Get a rebuild kit from Clay. He gave you a link to them in his reply above.
