id just bypass the internal cooler, run an air cooled stand alone in front of the radiator, and plug the barbs on the radiator.

im gunna call tommorrow, and see how much of a discount i get, i might have a lil leak in mine too...

try summit, jegs, and jcwhitney for the aftermarket coolers

or napa (where i got some of mine), autozone n such, just dont put a motorhome sized cooler on a ranger, the pump cant push thru it efficiently, size it right!
