  • 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!

    thanks

      I thought I remembered Dan-TSS doing this...not sure if it was him though.

            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.
