Oil coolant Lines*revisited* for '97 Defender

I have looked through posts and done searches but only seem to find useful information on 94 and 95 Defenders.

What solutions are their to replace these lines with someting that wont burst on a '97 Defender?

Any websites where to purchase products, anything that people did themselves or any other info would be very useful.

Thanks in advance for everyones help. I dont want to be a fire victim.

Thanks!!

West Coast Rovers sells SS lines. They replace the rubber hose portion with SS, they have you ship your old lines to them for the next customer. Make sure that they measure correctly, they sent me lines that were too short.

I'm getting ready to pull my lines out and take them to a Hydraulic business I have dealt with for 7 years. I've been advised they could make the SS braided hoses with no problem.

I'll keep everyone posted of the details and cost.

Ade,

Do you remember how much the West Cost Rover lines cost?

Thanks,

Ed

That's real interesting! I just sent a set back because they were too short...call him back, ask if he can make the lines longer on the set I sent back.

I hope I atleast get my core money back. He sold all ther sets they made so I wonder why no market?

maybe to much work for them to be the middle man??

"No... no market for them, really. Stock set are about $200 for the pair, should be in stock"

I went ahead and replaced my oil lines with a set from West Coast, and it wasn't as much trouble as I anticipated. I sent my old ones back to WC as cores.

Now changing the bottom radiator hose was a bitch, the hose clamp was in a postion that it wasn't meant to be. .
