I'm not planning to run the cooler on my OM617-powered race truck - but it will run for a just a few minutes at a time. I had the bypass hose made at the local heavy equipment hose shop (the guys who make hoses for backhoes and the like). Some of the fittings are pretty pricey but way less than replacement M-B hoses. I used a narrow Vice Grip for the back-up wrench and an adjustable for the nut, but my engine was out of the car.
