ATP Oil leak!

2004 ATP, 330-
I have oil leaking from the brass pressure fitting leading (or returning) from the oil cooler on the motor side. I removed the fitting from the block and it looks fine. I put teflon tape on the fitting and reinstalled with no luck? What am I missing?!?

you might have a slight blockage/restriction of oil flow in the oil lines or oil cooler.i would unhook the oil lines behind the oil filter and with compressed air blow out the lines.put a container under one end of the oil lines to catch any oil still in the oil cooler.we've had a slightly blocked oil cooler on the same machine,leaking from the pressure oil line.we ended up changing the cooler.we compaired the air pressure coming out of the new cooler compaired to the old cooler,you can hear the difference.that fixed the leaking line/fitting.

Update....after double and triple checking the brass fitting and cooler, I noticed that where the line goes into the oil case is cracked. Called a buddy of mine at the dealership who told me that this happens on rare occasions. They actually came out with a new replacement tank to stop this problem.....sounds expensive!
