    looks like it anyway.
    make sure it has the 2 sensors in it cuz the gen 2 cross overs only have one sensor.

      The 96-98 Cobra crossovers are supposed to be identical to first gen Mark VIIIs according to the Mustang guys. I'd snatch that second one up. Other than the usual peeling coating under the hoses, it looks to be in excellent shape.

      For what it's worth, the part number for the O-rings is 391533-S100. You need 3, but you probably know that.

        Update: Installed crossover, had a nut welded on the plug (fits 19mm I believe), then I noticed the cap from the resevoir wasn't holding pressure so I replaced that, now im noticing the plug on my fan is loose and sometimes wont turn on so im trying to find a solution to make it stay plugged in right.

        Nylon zip ties work for this.

        pull it, clean it, replace the o rings, re-install it.

        Put a thin coat of oil on the o ring when reinstalling it to make sure it doesn't get pinched or tear.

        As others have said, take it of and re-ring it. Simply putting silicone sealer on it will not hold pressure. And without the ability to hold pressure you will have overheating issues.

        If it was leaking for some time, maybe it's burning off the coolant that leaked out. Take it for a ride down 75 @ 75 for a while. It will probably be fine when you get home.
