  • Oil Cooler!

    i have an 84 automatic turbo motor and it has the oil cooler lines comming off the oil filter!
    im wondering has anyone attempted to add stainless steel lines to this!
    i don't really know where to begin or how to find out what size bolts would work!

    can anyone point me in the right direction!

    any hydraulics shop could handle it.... assuming they stock the braided aeroquip or whatever hoses

      I thought I remembered Dan-TSS doing this...not sure if it was him though.
      Check out his site and support the Z31 community at the same time.
      He might have what you need.

            Hey, those pics look very familiar

            There are a couple places in the Tampa Bay area that can fabricate up SS hoses for the oil cooler lines. Amazon Hose, and Goodyear to name a few. I'm sure EllisAutoworkZ could have a nice set made up at Amazon Hose for ya, since that place is just across the street from them.

            Another option is to buy a good length of SS hose and some clamps. Cut the old hose and hats off the steel lines. Slide the new hose over it and then clamp it down. I have had my lines in the fender area secured like this for a year now with no sign of leaks.

              Thanks for those. I always try to keep pictures I find interesting in some way, but usually forget who posted them.
