overheating perkins 4108

My perkins also overheats if i run it too hard, if i push the throttle to full the rpm's stop at 1500 when in gear eventually overheating...from what i've been told it is definately the prop...I'll let you know how it works out after I change it...that of course after I find a new oil cooler..it is way to corroded and spewed oil all over my engine room and bilge ***gross*** if you know where I can get a new oil cooler. it is attatched to my heat exchanger/expansion tank and seems pretty tough to find...it is a marinised perkins 4108 so any direction here would be greatly appreciated.

thanks,

ted
