Looking for an oil line solution for 95 Defender

Hi,

I recently had a scare of my life when my oil line busted, and the bottom of my D90 was on fire. All is okay, and I was one luck mother..., but I'm trying to find someone or some place that sells the stainless steel braided over rubber with "AN" fittings... I have tried Atlanticbritish, George at Rovers Down South, Expedition Exchange and emailed ECR, so far the only place everyone has told me is to try ECR, but as of today I still have not heard from them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm just not running any oil lines. Aluminum radiator, electric fan, all is good.

My buddy got his from JEGS .. he used their PRO-FLO 200 series and made it work. I used Thermo-Tec exhaust wrap to control the heat... I like the stainless steel line from ECR and that will help. But let me know when someone comes up with a good way to install a oil cooler infront of the radiator like my dodge truck instead of thru the radiator. then you can re-route the oil lines and have a more efficient cooling method.

any line shop will make them for you off your old lines. drop them by a tractor repair place.

Also check out the long on-going thread in the "looking for help" section. It's on page 2 at the moment. Common question, lots of good answers out there for it.

I have a set of the trailhead 4x4 and am very happy with them. Can't go wrong with them or ECR's.

That what I got too.
I have been happy the lines but I just learned they were not installed correctly. Just spoke with Eric and he sent out replacement fittings that were cross threaded and leaking. I"ll be reinstalling this week.
