Despite huge care and using two wrenches I broke the flange on the hard line from the oil filter housing where it joins a flexible line. It just broke inside the nut. It’s sheared so cleanly that I almost think it could be repaired though I doubt I would take that chance as a future failure could be catastrophic.
As these lines are now discontinued and are rare enough used are there any options? The rest of this pipe looks excellent. Hoses look good but who knows after 44 years?
The only used one I’ve found looks to be good at the pipe connector end but rusty at the oil filter end. Can these pipes be cut and joined so I can make one good one out of two?
