In need of oil lines...

Hey guys, any recommendations on oil cooler lines? They're starting to leak.

Thanks in advance....

Easiest option would be to contact Rotary Works and buy their braided line kit. I'm sure they have the right fittings for old style dual pass coolers.

Otherwise, the better option, stop by Mazdatrix and get AN fitting adapters and steel braided lines. I bought my racecar cooler from Dave and he had his adapters on their to switch to AN.

I got mine from racing beat as a kit.
Follow the installation instructions to the T.

In Socal, bring your stock oil lines to "The Hoseman" and have them replace it with high pressure and be sure to have them crimp the ends. No need to buy the AN fitting for appx $10/each.

I dont trust steelbraided (RB/Mazdatrix) as back in the days when LA junkyards were filed with RX, most of the ones with steel braided lines had blown motor due to leaky or blown steel braided lines.

wackyracer has a good idea.. let me know if you go that route.

Sounds like a good idea and would save a lot of cash.

Awesomeness...

Wackyracer....took your advise but I took it to Luky's hardware store in Burbank instead on a Saturday where Hoseman closes at 12pm. They have every fittings imaginable and they changed my oil lines to perfection!

Massi....I took Wackyracer's advise and changed my lines instead and it worked out great!
