I’ve been wrestling with these oil cooler hoses for a couple hours. The supply line is still leaking at the cooler side. I’ve got a couple of quarts of oil across the floor. I’ve loosened and re-tightened it several times. Removed the engine side thinking that have been causing it to be askew while tightening.
It is leaking from the top of the brass nut. I took the whole thing out again to compare it to the original. The brass nut does seem a little lopsided when it’s resting on the flare of the pipe.
It did have some flaking paint on it when I received it from moss motors. Now looking at their website they have the part listed for $230, as opposed to the $53 they charged me a month and a half ago. I’m thinking I may have gotten a poorly remanufactured hose.
Has anyone else had difficulties getting the cooler side of these hoses seated properly?
