Trying to order oil lines from Eric at Trailhead for the '94 my dad just bought. Have sent several pics to him but cannot get the right angle and or my crappy iPhone pics. Still cannot determine which set of lines he needs. It was easier on my 90 due to no AC. Any suggestions as to figure out which lines to order? '94 w/AC. The good/bad thing is he will not drive it till they are switched (I scared him) but it's been a month and he's getting antsy.

simple maybe disconnect the heater hoses and get a wrench on the cooler lines, the difference is the fittings in the radiator. probably needs a bath in pb blaster they appear to be corroded

good job on having him replace those lines

I believe the difference is the thread inside diameter on the oil filter sandwich plate.

Given they need to come off AND he is not driving it until they are replaced, thoughts on simply removing the origional lines to begin with? Much easier to photograph or simply mail to Trailhead to replicate.

Ya. Just pull them and the adaptor plate and refit the oil filter boss and go without. No big deal. Mine has been that way for two years.

Trailhead lines come with a new plate.

Yes, it is obvious this truck spent all it's life in Hawaii. Fortunately no major rust.

No, white truck bought from a serviceman and forum member who transferred from there to Jacksonville.

If you need a set, I have a complete set of stainless lines and sandwich plate that I bought for my 110. I installed them briefly before deciding to pull the engine and completely go through it too. They have maybe an hour total run time on them. Anyway, I've decided not to run an oil cooler with my new setup, so I'd part with them.

It was quite a pita sourcing the right stuff when I did it, but now it's all together and essentially new. Best offer takes them, as I recall the Mocal Sandwich plate alone was about $100, plus lines etc. My loss is someone's gain...PM me if anyone is interested.
