Oil cooler lines and turbo cooler lines
« on: March 29, 2017, 08:55:02 PM »

I've replaced all the coolant lines except for the oil and turbo lines.  The oil cooler lines appeared to formed hoses and I didn't even know there were turbo cooler lines until I did a database search on the oil lines.  Are these available or do we just have to do the best we can?

Thanks, Jack Byrd

No problems with binding in those tight corners?

Not too bad, with the right angle. Had to fiddle with it for a while to get it kosher.

You can get pre-bent hoses which can be cut to length around the bend - I found the angle too tight to just use standard hose as it kept crimping/kinking at the bend.  It is a damn fiddly place to get a hose on and off...!!!

Do mean some hose that kinda works and then force it?
