Thanks for the empathy and advice. Definitely don't need any of the metal bits and glitter fouling things up. Everything but the lines that run along the passenger side will be cleaned in the machinist's equipment. He uses a jet washer, then an ultrasonic tank, then a media blast. I'll either clean the lines and hoses myself or replace them, depending on how they look. I'm not looking forward to the oily mess!

The hard lines from the t-stat to the cooler are not hard to clean. When you remove the t-stat and the cooler, which is of course the hardest part and use patience to avoid trashing the t-stat and cooler male threads, you have clear access to both ends.

I tie a few heavy washers to a long & strong piece of cord. On the other end I wrap the cord around a piece of rag. I hose the rag with brake parts cleaner and also squirt a lot into the line itself and shake it around. Pull the cord through the line and it'll swab out the oil residue and crud. I do this several times and use a new piece of rag as needed until the rag comes out clean.

You definitely need to open the t-stat because there's some hiding spots in there where crud can collect. It's in the bypass/overpressure section of the t-stat (the smaller of the two screw-on cap locations) where the crud collects

Oil coolers for sure!

Great tips, KTL, thank you. I've been reading up on oil line cleaning, and people seem to have success with the method you describe. I'll give it a shot.
