You can reuse the clamps or replace them with a $3.00 box of gas line clamps. The hoses I paid in the $7.00 racnge but I get a 25% discount at the dealer.

I rinsed out the oil cooler with acetone and let it dry for a few day's, reused the fittings that hold all that together.

All you need is the pipe and the 3 hoses.
Of course. Unfortunately the cooler itself may be leaking. I'm planning on replacing all the hoses, the coolant pipe, and if necessary the cooler as well. The O ring above has already been replaced, leak still happening, either the O ring didn't get installed properly or the cooler itself is leaking. Hopefully the former.

What was the reason for rinsing the cooler with acetone, was it to clean out the coolant side of the exchanger? Also, when you say you reused all the fittings that hold that together, are you referring to the various hoses etc, or can the cooler itself be further disassembled?
