New Oil Cooler Lines - BIG problems
So I decided to finally replace my oil cooler lines after seeing all the threads about fires. Took the new lines to the local hydraulic shop and had some braided lines installed. To make even more fire proof i put aviation grade orange heat sheilding around the braided tubes. So far so good
Reinstalled everything. Pulled center coil and cranked to move some oil. Replaced coil, started and ran for 10 minutes, leak checked.....so far so good....
Took it on the road....smoke....oil spewing all over the vehicle!!!! Oil appears to be leaking from the seal between sandwich plate and pump or from seal at filter.
Question: Does the sandwhich plate mount to the pump only one way? Or am I fine as long as the seal is seated properly?
Question: I installed a new AMSOIL SDF15 oil filter. The filter seems to rub against the fitiings on the oil lines so I am not sure if it is properly seated. Do I have the right filter?
Also the oil spayed in to the fan which then evenly coated the entire engine bay....can anyone recomend a good degreaser?
I am new at this but determined to learn my 90 inside and out. Thanks in advance for any help...
