    Need to replace the oil cooler tube on my 1996 F350 with 7.3L diesel.

    Stealership wants $311 + tax

    Online ranges from $90 to $240 +tax + shipping

    anyone else have similar outcomes?

    Well part came in. This will be the first damaged part i recieved from parts geek. Fins on one side you can see where some one broke them with a prybar. Unit was also covered in sand, Fair bit of rust on the ends. Besides that they put enough lead on it to not only level above the tubes but blocked a couple of tubes. Looks like i am stuck with a bad leak for another 2-3 weeks

    Here is the stock picture they had of it

    And this is what i got.
