Oil Cooler lines... yes, again, but take a look

Yes, the subject has been beaten to death, but I wanted to post this as yet another warning to all those who have not done their lines yet, or who link that low mile lines will save you.
In our shop now is a 1995 D90SW with 28K miles.... and an oil line fire and a large repair bill.

http://www.eastcoastrover.com/207.html

It all could have been prevented with updated oil cooler lines.
Whoever or whatever method you choose... change them.

The fire even left an ugly graphic pattern on the sides of the truck. Will that be expensive to remove?

Oh the temptation... every time I walk by that truck I want to peel those off, but it isn't my truck and the customer loves the stripes and all.

Hopefully they'll love their new oil cooler lines as much. At least the chassis is keeping with the galv theme.

Man I gotta win the lottery or something... It must be awesome to see pictures of your truck at a shop, stripped down to pieces, getting a brand new galvanized frame, and fixed right from there.

(as I find the local welder again to put a hokey patch on the RRC frame at another hole he missed last time)

They did.

Unfortunately it burned before the new owner got it home (200 miles).It only burned for 6 min. Its been at the shop for a couple of years and is now coming in to be rebuilt for spring delivery.

With upgraded oil lines.

Wow, that was a pretty truck.

Do Tdi's suffer from the same affliction? I know the pump/filter/oil lines are a different configuration.

At least the oil lines on the tdi dont run near an exhaust manifold. I think the proximity of an 800 degree tube is the real problem.
