Noticed pin sized hole in oil cooler lines as well as a leak from around filter housing. Purchased upper and lower hoses and housing gaskets. Is project as simple as thermostat replacement also worried in how seating order of oil filter housing gaskets. Is there anything else I should replace

If you are talking about a remote filter it's hard to get to the pieces mostly, pretty much unbolt an d bolt back up. We have no pics to show on this though. Just make sure that you get the
old gasket out of cooler housing to block as that will leak like the old oil filters would due to 2 gaskets.
