Aye, it certainly wasn't a real Ford one, but if I'm any judge of these things, it came out of the same factory and off the same machine as OE ones.

Latest update:

Received the revised oil cooler from TPUK along with the updated longer hose required (ordered together). After a slight hiccup with missed messages they also were kind enough to supply the necessary longer bolts for free too (and threw in a new sump plug I'd enquired about buying as well to make up for the hiccup!).

There is a clear difference between this part and the other one I purchased from another seller on ebay initially. The TPUK part has a much neater, higher quality casting, holes are drilled more precisely and the interface between the oil cooler radiator and the oil filter mount appears to be manufactured to more precise tolerances.

The oil filter and oil filter mount both have part numbers and manufacturer's stamps, however they have both had the manufacturer's name ground off. As Jim said, I'd also wager a lot of money they came off the same production line as the genuine branded parts. ;-)

For anyone else reading this and looking at fitting this updated oil cooler - my earlier estimation of the required bolt sizes turned out to be correct. Five x 35mm and one x 75mm, all M8.

Did you happen to see what the part no of the modified hoses were please ? I had to make up a joiner when I did mine ?

Hi John,

Was going to check the hose I was supplied really is the correct length today before I gave you the part number, however today didn't quite go according to plan... Busy tomorrow but will check on the weekend and post back.

Cheers,
Rob.

John - I've swapped the old oil cooler for the new modified one from TPUK now. What a pain that job was - Ford don't make these things easy to access! The worst bit was getting the hoses off as there's hardly any room to wiggle them about. A heat gun ended up helping get them to let go...

The new design makes it much easier to access hoses and bolt heads than the old design. I can confirm that the hose recommended by TPUK is definitely the correct one for the modified oil cooler:

The eBay listing is here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BRAND-NEW-EG ... 2975217007?

On the packaging for the hose it has a label with the following info:

"THH3
Transit Heater Hose Rubber MK6 MK7 - 4164703

YC159Y438CA
Loc"

Not sure which bits of that label are useful.

Cheers,
Rob.

Thanks for the comments, some sellers are listing aftermarket parts as "O.E" on eBay when they are for sure not. Not much we can do about this though as eBay do not want to know.
