I think I will do as I originally planed, remove the entire oil lines and front trombone cooler.

Its only 3-4 bolts more (my rocker covers av already off) and then I have all the room I ever need.
That way I can do some bonus work, like fixing the dings in the lines from some jacking incident (PO).

Are the oil lines made off brass? Could I get them real clean in some easy way, that will not harm them?

Last year I bought an oil line like that one that was used, but appeared to be nearly new. It might have been in service a few months at the most from the appearance. Unfortunately it did not fit my SC. I ended up buying the correct one from pelican and installing it $$$$.

The one I did not use looks very much like the one in your pictures.
I will take a better look at it tonight, if it will fit your car I will give you one heck of a deal on it.

That sounds sweet, but do you ship to Europe

Alright, update.
I have now replaced both oil lines going to the thermostat.

Does anyone know if there are any torque values for the oil lines to t-stat?
I figure that a little snug would be OK.

The line can be replaced new for under $100 or you can cut out the hose section and have another crimped in .(Almost as costly about $50). It is common for that hose to bleed a little at the crimp .
I am looking at doing the same work, as my 82 SC is now leaking from the point where the rubber is attached to the metal. I am leaning toward the replacement part method (it seems like a more "correct" fix), but I'm not happy about taking a chance of harming the thermostat, so I'm curious about the repair option.

I haven't dealt with hoses like this before. If I am using the yellow pages (or google), what kind of local shop should I look for to do the "crimped in" method? When I call them to discuss it/get an estimate, what do I tell them I need? Is there specific terminology that will tell them what kind joint that is in the middle?

Pull the line and take it to a Diesel Truck repair shop. They make hydraulic lines and they can use your old fittings and replace the hose.....lots cheaper than buying new.

Ask Ingo about his bug killing experiment when he rubbed a hole in his oil line and we AAA towed his butt back to town......

Got ya back for the Supertrapp crack..%^B

Update:
I was a little to quick to call out that I replaced all lines with new ones.
I fitted new lines but didn't connect the hose end to the engine hard-line until recently.

IT'S TOO SHORT!!!

The hard-line part is exactly as the old oil line but the flexible hose are about 20+mm (almost an inch) shorter on the new line.

Has anyone heard of this??




BTW: I didn't get it from Pelican but from a local company called "Ferdinand" here in Sweden.
The part is from the OEM supplier to Porsche and Ferdinand has confirmed that its not a manufacturing error, all lines are the same...

Wow, maybe I should cancel my order with Ferdinand then
Magnus, try contacting K3 in Stockholm and have a word with them? They might be able to help you out. Really friendly and helpful people, who like their P-cars

Pål: Its probably just my car....
I just left the line at a hydralics shop asking them to fit a longer hose.
If you get your old line off in one piece do the same.
