Hi,
I'm not quite sure what it is your asking, you started priming & oil came out of the block, where did it come out of the block?
I have no idea what your talking about with the oil cooler, can you elaborate? are you trying to connect it to the engine while it's on the stand? or how to install it in your car?
Rich
PS You might want to turn the engine just a little & not prime it until your ready to start it in your car, Or you'll be washing & rubbing the assembly lube that should be on the high pressure parts off, causing far less protection upon start-up.

No.
We are reading it thinking the rookie thinks he is sending a TXT message on his cell phone. We are wishing you knew what a full stop (key at bottom center of keyboard) and a few CAPITAL letters were so we could understand what you are saying and what the question was!
Try hitting the ENTER button occasionally ; the same way you take a breath at the end of a sentence


Where is the oil coming out of the block?
What sort of oil cooler has it got?
Original factory style?
