Oil Lines

I seem to have a slight oil leak coming from the oil lines located inside the right rear quarter panel just above the rear tire on my 87 930. Does anyone know if there are o rings or some sort of seal at the connections? Or are they tapered and just possibly loose? I do not want to play with them until I am sure of what I am dealing with.
Thanks

Mike, it sounds like you're talkin about the lines that run to the thermo and then on to the front oil cooler in your front right fender. If so, there are no o-rings that I know of.

To track it down you could pull the rr wheel and run the motor to pressurize the lines to see exactly where the leak is originating.

I'd guess there are probably 2 sources in there:
1-a loose fitting
2-a ruptured rubber line

Good luck with your detective work

Mike,

there are hose - tube connections slightly backwards of the rear tire.
Maybe you should check them first.

Loose screw connections at the thermo are not very common I think.
Its a mess to unscrew the oil lines from the thermo. Last time I did this,
I needed to cut the hex screws with a dremel to get them of.
Be carefull with them, the threats on the thermo can be damaged easy.
