oil filter gasket?

So I think I have a small leak coming from the oil filter adapter/housing thinga mah jig. Looks like it also has a coolant line going to it as well. Any one every had one of these leak on them before? Doesn't look to bad to replace once the oil filter is off just wonder what all might go along on this little fix.

Mine leaks.
But only when I over fill the crankcase by a bit...

I have not taken mine off of the Mustang yet, to fix it, but, I have had an oil cooler leak on my F250 and there were two O-rings that needed to be replaced. I imagine that the cooler on the 4.6 is similar...

You'll need the gasket, and make sure to torque the bolts back to spec. Obviously, you'll have to drain fluids too....

So finally got around to getting this done but I cant the torque specs for this any where. Does any one have any clue to how many ft lbs of torque this requires?

The oil cooler adapter to block bolts are 15 to 22 ftlbs
The engine oil cooler insert fastener is 43 ftlbs.
