Anybody have an old junkie set of oil cooler lines?

I can't afford the sexy setup that ECR offers (I wish). So I'm going to take a set down to a local tractor repair shop. But I'd rather not take them off my Defender and make it un-driveable.

Anybody have a beat up set sitting in a junk pile? I'd be happy to pay for shipping and perhaps throw in a $10 Starbucks giftcard????

Thanks in advance!

-Steve

Kelby, PM sent. Thanks.

Cory, thanks for the offer to check in the morning. I think Kelby has me covered.

Thanks everyone. My Defender has seen daylight for the 1st time in over 2 years... she's alive again thanks to a buddy mechanic. Now, some fine tuning and rust removal and we'll be good to go.

The D-90 Source is such a great forum. Thanks in advance for all the advice I'm sure I'll be coming to you guys for.

-Steve

I took my truck to a hydrolic shop & the overhauled them with super thick lines installed for $150. You might want to go that route?

taking them off does not make it undriveable. You just stick the oil filter right back on after removing the sandwich plate.

Different type of repair... for oil lines

’95 D-90: Just replacing mine...cost $39. Took out the lines and had local shop Power Product tech repair. Cut off original hose at the metal/rubber point; used 1/2" high pressure heat resistant rubber hose; installed over the rubber hose is a Silco Blue Pyrotex jacket (heat/flame cover to 500 deg); 1 1/4" JR band crimped clamps…no doubt, much better hose than stock and will not fail due to the manifold heat, even direct contact. High-pressure hose is not needed (65-psi normal oil pressure), however, high temp hose had the benefit of being both. The reason for using the ½” hose is that he could utilize the original crimp in the rigid hose for added security from being pulled apart once clamped. If I were to do it again, I would probably have cut the ridged metal ends off, flared the pipe, so that a smaller hose could be fitted…finished hoses are about ¾” thick but look great, if not too bright/blue. To me, braided lines have little, if any, benefit as the internal hose is not high temp nor does the braided jacket disperse much heat. The various kits being sold have the advantage of relocating the lines farther from the manifold. I will follow up with pictures and review on how well I was able to relocate them farther away from the manifold.

note: shop is willing to repeat repair at the same cost...
