Oil Cooler Lines

This is probably a stupid question, but do I need to drain the engine oil before replacing the oil cooler lines?

Thanks,

Greg

No, but be prepared for drainage from the cooler itself once you remove the lines.

You know those little plastic caps that come on gear oil quarts like Mobile 1? They are like a pointy thimble? Those shove really nicely into your oil cooler holes when you unplug the lines to keep them from draining.

Trailhead 4x4 in Ohio makes a good set of lines.

I have a new, unused kit from Rover Accessories. Still have the receipt. It was $297. I will sell it for $275 plus shipping, which would probably be $5 if you are interested.

This is what it looks like.

I got my parts for the AN oil lines from Jegs using the ECR list.

One very important tip (from experience) One end of each hose is NPT and one is not. Don't mix them up like I did. The NPT ends go in the rad. I ordered my parts and then let them sit around for a few months before I got around to putting them in. I didn't look at the directions before doing the job so I got is bass ackwards. Eventually I found my mistake, by then I was late and the wife was pissed.

Works great right way around by the way.

Tony,

I should be good putting them in, but I will not be able to get to them until next weekend. We are heading up to Maine this weekend. I am going to swing by ECR and say "Hey" while I am up there.
