I got my parts and took the cooler out today.

and as Patrick warned, parts fell out of the back housing.... I am HOPING I found everything.

Can anyone confirm?
Looks like I have the 3 regulator parts for the back side...

But I'm concerned about the other spring and washer that is directly under the spin-on filter.... Is that all there is?? please tell me I didn't lose anything... LoL

It looks like the spring drops in then gets compressed and held by the top washer.... Also looks like that top washer was "staked" or hit with a prick punch to help stay in... ? the spring needs to be compressed a bit to get the washer on top.... pat, Yeah a snap ring would have been GREAT

heres a few pics... hopefully I explained it well enough to understand..

OK
after searching the web, I found that the spring and washer under the filter is the Oil Filter bypass valve ....
so if the oil filter gets clogged, the pressure opens the spring and bypasses the oil around the filter....

But the picture I found with that info looks like there is also a solid disc? under the washer (that is staked in) ??

can anyone confirm this?

I may have to carefully sift through my oil drain pan..... or under the truck somewhere.... arrggghhh

Yes you are missing the disc. The picture you found is of the updated header with the snap ring. If you found the disk (I did not on mine), you could put the parts back in and re-stake it. I ended up buying the new updated header (F81Z-6881-BA, it lists for $543.22, but can be found online for about $269). It looks like you have all the regulator parts. Cheers!

Thanks
It appears to be a fiber disc.

If I cant find it, I will make one.

I shocking this did not fall out during an oil change....
Im sure there are a few 94-95 OBSís running around with NO bypass valve !

And as a result very little or NO oil filtration.

IMO, Ford should have had a recall or at least a bulletin on this.

Anyway, easy enough to fix.

One more stupid Question:

since I'm still sitting on the couch....

The REGULATOR -
It drops in just like this picture?
body first / then inner piece/ then spring

pretty sure thats how it came out.... just want to double check.

I wonder if I should stake that also?

Well...
Looks like I have other issues...

The middle cooler tube is rusted to all hell.
chipped the flaking rust off and found at least one pin hole...

Just ordered this amazon replacement.... supposedly overnight delivery... wish me luck... reviews were good. and I'll use my genuine Ford gaskets/O-rings.

also, I couldn't find the DISC for the filter bypass.... looks like it should be slightly bigger (wider) than the spring ... AND just big enough to cover the hole in the middle of the top washer.....

so it can move downward if necessary.



speaking of the bypass valve...... (just thinking out loud here)
How often does a big spin on filter get clogged or restricted anyway??

seems like probably not often..... unless something catastrophic happened in the engine ..... so your probably screwed anyway....

Do your self a HUGE favor and throw that new cooler in the trash when you get it. Buy a new a Ford cooler or find a used oem one. Put the idea of using aftermarket parts on these trucks out of your head and it will save you problems in the future.
