Oil leak from oil cooler.

So it appears that my stock oil cooler is leaking through the manufacture press fittings that holds it together. Damn it. Anyone know the exact size of the oil cooler center bolt? It doesn't seem to have it in the manual. Seems simple to replace but don't have the right size socket and I don't feel like playing the guess and check game. Thanks guys.

Re: Oil leak from oil cooler.

I used a 1&1/4" I had laying around and it worked fine. Just had a little play.
