OK.
So I replaced the coolant flange. Wasn't the hardest job ever (i.e. sump) and fixed that leak. I got the dual port one and it came with a plug in the second port. That leak is fixed. I gather I caused it be bumping the hard line while fixing the oil leaks.

Anyway, now I have a coolant leak that appears to be on one of the hoses on the oil cooler. I removed the hose and cleaned up the rubber, no holes. And I checked the bore and cleaned up the barb. There was a lot of dry coolant on there. I re-installed the hose with new hose clamps but it looks to still be leaking.
Do you think a new hose is the way to go, or am I looking at replacing the whole oil cooler?
Any tips for new players for that job"?>

TIA

If the hose will not seal, replace it. Make sure the barb is clean, run your fingers around the back to make sure nothing is stuck to it. Inspect the barb with a mirror for cracking just to be certain.
