Oil Cooler Leak Question? Engine out or in?

I think, and have been told, that I have a leak from the engine oil cooler. (Car is a 73 with a 3.0 from a 78) I have read in Wayne Dempsey's book that it is possible to replace the seals without dropping the engine. The technical articles seem to recommend dropping the engine. I am sure both are probably possible but how hard is it to go from the experience level of changing your oil to pulling the oil cooler off, having it pressure tested and then replacing the seals. What other books / information would you recommend. Can I bribe anyone with beer/pizza to supervise my attempt? Probably am not going to attempt this until the rains come for fear of missing out on autocross/ track days but I would appreciate any advice. Thanks!

I was able to R/R the oil cooler on my 2.7 with a partial drop. I don't thinks there enough room to pull the cooler otherwise.

You definitely will need to do a partial drop. Once you have access to the oil cooler bolts is is actually a very simple process to remove and reinstall.
