In an effort to insure you get everything you need you can now buy extra block fittings with 3/8″ npt (the kit already comes with 1/2″ npt block fittings). If you are unsure what size block fittings you need for an extra $14 you can buy both by adding these to your cart. (note there are no returns/refunds allowed on these).




Notice: when installing hoses hand tighten the hose connection until it firmly bottoms out, then give a quarter turn more with a wrench. If you over tighten the seat might deform and cause a leak.

 

This kit is recommended for the late production 1997 thru 2000 6.5 liter Turbo Diesel engines with 1/2″ ports on the block above the oil filter. We developed this kit and are the only site offering it. We’ve had a lot of customers ask, “If I just need to replace the hoses, why do all the other kits require a new aftermarket cooler, when I have a perfectly good OEM cooler?” This kit will replace the leak prone OEM hoses with hoses that may very well outlast the rest of the truck. If your engine is 97-2000 you will likely have 1/2″ ports on the block above the oil filter. Please double check fitting size prior to ordering. If you have 1/2″ ports on your block you have a High output oil pump and will need the larger cooler fittings offered in this kit. If you have 3/8″ ports you will need our other kit for 92-96 engines. Kit fits 2WD and 4×4 models. On some early 4×4 vehicles the stock hoses maybe routed differently than this kit, but still works perfectly. We also offer a complete oil cooler kit below.
Kit comes with two stainless braided hoses that are 5/8″, specially machined cooler adaptors, 45* swivel fittings and the block fittings.

 

A quick way to tell what factory cooler you have is to try a 1″ wrench on the cooler nut, if it fits you have the 92-96 Non HO system. If it takes a larger wrench you have the HO system like in this listing. For the Non HO system click here

Keep your Factory/OEM engine oil cooler and upgrade the problematic hoses to -10AN (or 5/8″) stainless steel braided hose with teflon lining.
