Hole in oil-cooler!

My engine-oil cooler has been leaking for a while, a few drops over night, but now it´s worse, I can have the engine running and watch the oil make it´s way through..
Can I bypass the cooler with a hose, what threadsize is it? I´d like to have the car driveable while I search for a replacement cooler.
I know Benz put in a cooler for a reason, but I´m sure it would be OK to drive short trips without it, autumn is knocking on the door with temperatures barely reaching 18C at most.

Yeah, i plan to change it but until I find one, I´d like to have the car driveable without spreading oil everywhere..
W114 is not very common here, would a oilcooler from a W115 fit? Especially 220D?
