Oil Cooler Delete, Oil filter adapter part number?

579 Views 16 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  93snake
Good afternoon friends,

Planning on doing the (Complete) Oil Cooler Delete and am not sure if I have the right part number for the Oil Filter Adapter for use without the cooler.

The part number I have is 鈥嶺L3Z-6881-AB which I am finding for over $300. 馃槻

I am needing to confirm that this is the correct part number and ask if anyone may have or know of a source to purchase this part new.

***I can't use the oil cooler I have since it came off a blown motor.
If anyone has any other ideas, I would appreciate it.

Thanks for your help!!!

If you use the stock housing that runs along the block, you can just buy a nipple for $8.00

F1AZ-6890-A
The lower radiator hose from a N/A truck.

Wanting to do the delete (had an extremely tight clearance with the oil filter on my Moroso oil pan) however if it becomes too much of a pain, I will take your advice especially at $8 plus the hose. (-:

Thanks!!!

Just took the cooler off and it looks like your idea may also solve my clearance issue. :unsure:

I grabbed a filter and held it all in place and came up with about the same clearance you have. Looks like we have a winner.

Thank you, sir!!!

What is the advantage of getting rid of the cooler?
My opinion is less hoses to leak. Less chance of coolant in oil although rare. Ford no longer makes it so only choice for replacement is afternarket junk like dorman. Lol. Its only needed if ur road coursing truck or constantly hot lapping at drag strip. At that point i would get a performance oil cooler.

Wouldn't you also have to replace the driver side engine mount, since the bolts run through the oil filter adaptor as well?

If you were removing the Oil Cooler and housing/mount you would need to change out the motor mount on that side. I only removed the cooler itself as described by Certified Drunk above.

Worked out perfect for me and solved my oil filter clearance issue.

yes, but it鈥檚 a simple bolt / unbolt

I just had to replace my Oil Cooler due to getting oil in coolant. Apologies but it was nowhere a simple bolt/unbolt situation. Granted I didn't have a lift but still!!

I had a bear of a time getting that engine mount and the housing that runs along the side of the engine off. I had to take off the starter, passenger side mount, trans mount bolts, jack up the engine, and learn how to be a contortionist to take that sucker off, not to mention getting it back on.

I also replaced the gasket for the housing where it mates to the block. Couldnt tell if the leak was from the gasket or the oil cooler, but im glad I did. The gasket was starting to swell and disintegrate on one side.

If this doesn't work, I'm deleting the cooler as mentioned by @Certified Drunk and saying screw it. I don't road course the truck, its not even a daily driver at this point.

Looks like I鈥檒l be doing this as well when I put my new build in. I spun 4&8 rod bearings in my old motor, it lost oil pressure and the timing chain took a chunk off my oil pump. Looked like strippers had a party in my oil pan. So I鈥檓 very hesitant to reuse my oil cooler.
