Re: [T3] oil cooler problems...

BTDT!!! I took a generic 8mm bolt, cut it to proper length to fit the cooler,
fastened it in the chuck in the power drill, and worked on it with a metal file
while it spun @ 3000 rpm. When it was down to 6.1 mm I threaded it with an M6
thread cutter. Now I had a nice adapter that both fit the new Brasilian case and
the type3 oil cooler.
