Remove the cooler fitting and grind a shallow V-notch along the crack. Not in the threads tho'. Clean it with Brake parts cleaner and smear the JB in the crack and threads, put a little Antisieze on the fitting an screw it in, let it set up a day or two. Or have it welded. And don't over tighten the fitting like someone has already done. 26-30 ft/lbs torque.

If you do as noted in the post from ssedan64 JB weld should be fine. Just make sure to clean it properly before you put the JB on. Cole
