Oil cooler hoses

I've had two Defender V8 with oil cooler hose failures come through the shop this year, and currently have 3 with marginal looking hoses. I've been working with a Rover guy (Bill Bettridge) who specialises in industrial plumbing. He has located adaptors that fit directly into the oil cooler adaptor at the oil filter housing, and have fabricated fittings using the original pipe into the oil cooler at the radiator. The hose is a single wire convoluted style that is rated in excess of anything we can throw at them for both temp and pressure. Finally, we wrapped them in a silicone fire sleeve for more heat protection.
So far, these hoses have fit D90's with or with out a/c, v-belt accessory drives and the V8. I plan on adding the 97 serp belt Rovers to the list, as soon as one comes in or Trevor Combs lets me borrow his Defender for a night!
Is this something that others might be interested in?

After hearing Doug Walker's story about losing his 110, who wouldn't replace their hoses. How much?

Wow!
Okay, here's what I have so far: I have made 2 sets that we have/are about to fit to v-belt V8s with and without a/c. (I will start on developing serp belts asap.) The biggest hang-up to this plan is that the end that fits into the radiator is fabbed up using original oil cooler hoses. We cut the ends and weld on on JIC fitting. I have some here to get started, but I'll need more! Even the Discovery oil cooler hoses will work if anybody has any discarded pieces to sacrifice. I would like to get a bunch of the pieces fabbed at one time so that turn around is quicker.
What to charge? I'm not looking to retire off of this stuff! I'm fairly certain I can keep the price under $195 a pair, as long as I have enough usable ends. If I have to buy new hoses just to cut up, it pushes the price up, and I would like to avoid that!

I was going to attach photos but the files are too large. I will retake the photos and send again later.

I don't know but isn't this the wrong way to go? I thought the point was to replace the entire assembly with something better not splice into the existing setup.

What is the fitting at the radiator? Why not have one custom fabbed, if need be, and do the same at the other end? Replace the hose with something better and there you have it.

Heck, I would think there's a few thousand orders out there waiting to be filled with a correct replacement.

How about having a "Core Charge" type deal going on, to help get some hoses back. I have no problem sending you mine when I do the swap, I just have to have something to put in there so that I can drive the thing. Or maybe give a ring over to carcannibal.com which is a rovers only wrecking yard.

Art. The steel portions of the lines aren't an issue at all, it's the rubber flex section that goes bad and blows out. As long as that weak point is upgraded, there shouldn't be any problems using the upper steel section of the lines.
