oil cooler lines

I called rover accessories to order a oil cooler line kit. Rob told me he had a customer come to him from New Mexico to have a set put on and was unable to do so. The customer had a 97 with a 4.0, like mine. The nipple that the lines connect to the radiator were different. Rob thought the radiator could have been an aftermarket. My question is has anyone else had this problem or know of another company to try. Rovers accessories kit looks cool, and I like the warrenty, but am more concerned with functionability. Also is there any transmission lines that might be suggested? Thanks Chris

I am looking into this as well (after my Dad's engine fire) and I have found nothing for the 97 D90. I think we are stuck with replacing with genuine every several years.

Thanks Wicks I had a 76 landcruiser burn to the ground with mine and my friends stuff, so I am anxious to find something. I would like to upgrade them but if nothing else will stick to genuine. Thanks Chris

Wait a minute...you can always take them out and go to a local "hose shop" and have some custom made.

What fittings are on there, anybody know? I plan on doing mine over real soon now.

Wicks, maybe ask M&M, the metal fab shop on San Fernando, who makes hoses. I remember that Andrew Parker (96 Rangie) said he pulled his out, took them to a shop and waited while new ones were made, then went back and installed.

Sounds like a good possibility. I will call some racing friends in Phoenix and see what I can come up with. Let me know if you guys find anything out, Calif. may bring more luck with this project. I didn't think about reusing the fittings, wasn't to sure if they were considered high preasure. Also I would assume(MOAFU) that the lines will have to be drained to remove, as in when changing the oil? Thanks again Chris

Kelly, there's a machine shop on San Fernando called M&M. Near the Glendale/Burbank line. They've done some work for us. Just thinking they may know of a hose shop that close buy. Could also call Industrial Metals out near the airport for a referral.

custom hoses LA

Hi Guys,

I build a lot of custom cars. I usually put the hoses together myself from stainless hose, and connections which I either get from PAW locally, or from racers wholesale mail order.
If I come across a high pressure hose that I want done better than I could do myself, I go to Orme Brothers Inc in Northridge. They are located at 18453 Parthenia Pl. Their number is 818 885-1414. They usually can do it while you wait, but I generally leave it one morning on the way to work, and pick it up the next.

-Andy

There is an ad in the Back of Four Wheeler that specializes in aftermarket hoses, they have like 200,000 applications, I think they do custom stuff also. I can't remember the name of the company though sorry

By the time you organize a group buy, get enough people together to make it worthwhile, order the stuff and get it all shipped to you, your hoses are going to blow and you'll toast your truck.

Take them off, get them rebuilt, get them back on. It only takes a day.

I may have a solution for all of us this week. Are we looking for all the lines to be replaced or just the high pressure lines (not the lines from the resevoir)?

If you're poking around there, might as well do all.

Interested...

If not, the r/r requires that we drain the oil, r/r (are those fittings to be wrapped in teflon tape before relacement), then we refill the oil? Anything else?

None of those fittings need tape. They are either compression fittings or use O-rings.
