Braided stainless oil cooler lines.
« on: April 25 2023, 11:08:49 PM »
I dug my GN out of the mothballs. A while back i fried one of my engines due to a bent cam. I've since repaired the engine.  I've been running it without the oil cooler. I now plan to get an aluminum radiator and want to reinstall the cooler.  I had previously bought a set of stainless oil cooler lines that bolted in directly, but don't want to use them in case there is still some debris in them. I want to buy another set, but I can't remember where I had bought them.
Does anyone know where I can buy them ?

I have not had an oil cooler in 30 years or so on one car.  The other one, I keep wondering why it has not starts spewing.  I noticed Highway Stars has factory reproduction lines.

Have not noticed anyone else selling them.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

After some poking around, I think I had gotten them from Johm's Performance, but It looks like he's no longer around. The website is g gone now.

John's Performance sold a lot of cool stuff. I got a few stainless flexible turbo oil return lines from them. He used to be in Oregon or Wash. State.   Any place that sells truck parts or good speed shop can make them up if you show them the ends you need.
