oil cooler lines??

Is this a easy job for someone slightly handy under the hood?

Thanks

If you can thread ends on a garden hose, you can do this job. Access is cramped, but the hardest thing is disposing of the oil.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

It shouldnt take a comp mech more than an hour or so. I really dont know what a Rover dealer or generic estimation guide list as the appropriate amount of time to be billed.

The man who drives a Defender equipped with 37-inch tires is right though, if you came by the house, we'd do it up quickly and you'd be right back on the road.

Hey Richard, It seems like a simple enough job. I could offer up some help. If you need a hand, let me know. Where "just outside of philly" are you?

last time I tried to get my garden hose on I couldn't do it. Do they screw on? maybe thats what I did wrong.
I might try this. I wasn't sure if you need any specific tools to do the job other then a few hand tools. drain the oil, put on the new hoses and fill the oil. I think I can handle that.

Christopher, I live in the East Falls area.

Just make sure you get the right hoses.

They sold me waterhose and I had to rebuild my engine.
(lost the oil, etc. , etc.)

After removing mine, I took em to the local hose shop and asked for some SS braided hoses made up ($100+). The guy talked me into letting him cut off the old hose and install some pretty standard rubber hose with clamps ($10). He said they'd last longer than the 90. But even if they didn't, I would only need to buy another section of rubber hose and push it on and tighten the clamps without having to get to and remove the screwed connections. Also, he recommended keeping the outside of the hose clean because they disinigrate from the outside in.

Are you joking? You mean standard hose clamps? Granted the oil system is not operating at extremely high (hydraulic-like) pressures, but I'm not willing to trust my engine to hose clamps. The cooling systems only uses hose clamps, but If coolant spews out everywhere ithen everything gets wet. If oil spews out everywhere, then everything catches on fire.

Not joking. I trust my setup lasts longer than your original LR hoses. Also, I seriously doubt oil spewing comes from a bad hose clamp... that's a leak. Spewing oil comes from hose rupture.... the kind you get from the LR part. I should know... it happened to me.

Well, it should theoretically be fine if he used high pressure hose and high pressure clamps. Modern EFI systems use fuel lines in the same pressure range, if not higher. If they are high pressure clamps and hose, he should be fine.

Might be something worth looking into.
