Default Aftermarket oil cooler?

Hey all!
So the pinzgauer just crossed the 90 day mark being in the shop, had an entire top end rebuild which I'll get into at another time. I've been sourcing pinzgauer specific parts from a guy in England.
One of the things I've purchased is an aluminum Radiator that has a built in oil cooler function. The English guy says he plumbs the oil cooler from where the factory oil cooler sits, he gets and adapter that has 2 line outlets, runs braided lines to the Radiator and back. That part is my question, does anyone know of where I can get an adapter for an aftermarket oil cooler. I hope I've explained myself well enough, this engine is new to me and I'm still leaning so much.
Thanks in advance!

I remember reading on this forum that the oil cooler is 'crap' and that it was unnecessary for the d24t or even risky to have. I am always tempted to remove then never reinstall the factory d24t oil cooler from my td car but decided to keep (risking) it. Luckily the car never had oil issues.
Second thought came when I refurbed another d24t motor... but, again, I decided to keep that engine 'stock' ... now I am very curious what the experts' answers will be to your question.
Until then, as a warm-up, a good previous discussion on our d24t oil coolers is found here:

Your d24t in that Pinz is considered a hard working engine due to the vehicle's weight and gearing, also the elevation you need to deal with where you live.
Once built, share pictures

So the pinzgauer guru I've been corresponding with swears by this set up in the Radiator. He's rebuilt tons of these diesel pinzgauers, and this is what he's said to do. Just hoping to source the part locally instead of him tracking one down and then shipping to me. 😑
