Default That bloody oil cooler pipe

I suspect I'm going to need this as i have a coolant loss issue developing.

I already have the gruvenparts pipe ready to go.

Before I start are there any must do jobs whilst I'm in there? Would rather not complete only to have to strip things down again the week after if something else breaks

You will need the ring to the cooler tube as well, and the one that looks kind of like an 8. Unless I am mistaken.
I looks like your pipe has the 4 o-rings.

Not exactly oil cooler related but when I did mine I also replaced the alternator brush and regulator pack. You will have to remove the alternator for access to the cooler so to me it just seemed worth doing whilst off.
