Thanks Pete ! I didn't think of that! The retainer "shaft" has a recessed area under the "nut" portion and I couldn't remember if it had an o ring or not...this engine has been inprogress for about a year...I piddle on it at work when there is no paying customer work...I'll pull the cooler off an engine I have in the garage and make sure. You always up at 4 in the morning?

I just replaced the oil cooler to block gasket last weekend, and I didnt see any small O ring on the shaft.

Up to make a f$%&*##@ miserable trip to Columbus for that swap meet. Snow, ice and rain all the way, both ways. almost more cars in the ditches than on the road. Just got home and damn glad I made it.
