I am planning on replacing them this weekend while I do the head gaskets, cam, timing chain and try to track down the radiator leak.

The previous owner of my D-90 was also meticulous about dealer service and OEM parts. I think mine were installed in Solihull in late '94!!!!

How many D-90s as opposed to D-110s have caught fire due to oil line failure?

Was thinking the same thing. Remember that the 110s are the oldest of the fleet. We need a Rover mechanic to tell us if the 110s and 90s lines are made of the same materials, but I believe they are. Don't know if they changed this for the 97s or not.

One of the vendors needs to make a set of oil lines that some of us can just purchase a complete set and install them instead of trying to find a local shop to make them.

Come on Pendy or Keith.

I've gone a different route as opposed to replacing just the rubber section. The hoses that we put together go straight from the adaptor at the oil filter to fabricated adaptors at the radiator. So far, I think we have the v-belt V8s with or without a/c covered, but we plan on adding the serp belt Defenders soon. (Fortunately, the Discos and the Defenders with the serp belt set-ups don't seem to have line failures. They do leak, just not burst.)
I'll try to post pix tomorrow.

wish i had service records the previous owner was a deadbeat when it came to maintenence (teenage girl drove it!) Gave me the car and the ignition key that's it. No keys for doors or console no spare keys, no service record wouldn't have bought it if I didn't know him.
