Update on gaskets.
Oil Cooler to block, found for $20 now. Got mine from Midwest Merkur.
Oil Cooler to adapter, Green Sales at $5/ea.
Green Sales is out of stock of bolt o-ring.

The proper gasket can be purchased from any Perkins dealer. Modine sold the IP to Perkins many years ago & they use the oil cooler on many of there generator platforms. As of 3 years ago, the gasket was manufactured in India. It should set you back about $8.00.

A few years ago I read that the cooler to block gasket is the same as any FL1A oil filter gasket. I stole one off a "free" STP oil filter.

I've been keeping all of mine if anyone needs one. Common size for Ford so I've keeping my FL910S and FL400S gaskets too.

I was also able to get everything I needed from MPM. Sucks when you do an oil change THEN realize your oil cooler is leaking like a sieve.

From my research a few years ago, I have learned that they aren't the same as the oil filter gasket. The ones from the oil filter are actually a little bigger than the cooler.
