Please help. Oil cooler lines lost by my hydraulic guy!

Hi all.
I need some serious help. I brought my oil cooler lines to a local hydraulic shop for them to reinforce the lines. I checked back with them a few weeks later to find that they lost the lines! Someone must've accidentally thrown them away. The owner of the shop wants to make this right with me and is happy to build a set up from scratch. Can anyone help me with the specs needed to replicate what they lost? Or something close? Any help on this will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Agreed, but they won't do that. They'll make them from scratch.

Sounds like you need to drop your truck off there and let them have at it. What other choice do you have?

Or perhaps a spec sheet of fitting sizes and hose lengths? That's pretty much all it is, right?

If you towed the truck over there they'd lose that to!

There's a whole spec sheet posted a few times on the forum somewhere. I can't remember, but I think it was Hans who put it all together. The fittings are pretty standard from Summit Racing and the like. You could also just purchase the Trailhead kit, and have the shop compensate you for a portion of the purchase.

Do you need some stock lines for a 1994 D90?

I will send you a set for the cost of freight.

Since they lost your originals, they should at least refund you the cost of a 'used' set of lines. Have them put that value towards a set of trailheads.

Remove your oil cooler adapter at the oil filter and be done with it. After having my radiator recored I got to see what the oil cooler portion looks like. Get rid of it and get even better oil pressure.

X2. They are likely overkill for most of us to begin with. I'd never use my 16 year old defender in conditions that these lines were designed for anyway.
