Oil cooler leak

So I have a '95 Cobra and I have an oil leak where my oil cooler plate meets the engine block and I'm wondering if anyone has had this problem and if they have tried this kit http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewi...id=84953136888

Had the same issue on my 94 Cobra. All I did was snug up the bolts and it stopped leaking.

Really? That would be great because Ford doesn't make the parts any more and I'm kind of apprehensive about eBay parts

The seller in your link has less then 99.8-100%.. Sad to say but I'd stay away..if its a gasket issue you could maybe cut your own?

You could try a place that makes hydronic hoses, some make their own seals.. You could also try LRS or 5.0Resto

It's been a long time since I looked at te oil cooler but I believe you could get an o-ring kit and it should have what you need. Since my leak was remedied by just tightening the hardware down I can't say for certain.
