Default Transmission Fitting Question

Hey all, one quick disconnect fitting on my heat exchanger (47RE auto) started leaking. I bypassed it to get going again, but the transmission wants to heat up at low speeds. Would I be better off to put another cooler on with a fan or fix the fitting and put the exchanger back on line? I know the fitting uses an O ring, but is the O ring on the line or in the fitting when you take it apart? Anyone happen to know what size O ring?

I did some digging and found out that the fittings screw into the exchanger using 3/8" pipe thread. I am going to use 1/2" barb by 3/8" pipe thread fittings and run new hose to where I cut the lines to bypass the exchanger. It is kind of surprising how much the exchanger helps. It doesn't take long at slow speeds to warm the oil up!
