NOS oil pressure lines??
« on: March 22, 2017, 06:05:12 AM »
I have the flexible oil pressure line that go to the gauge and block.  They seem to be just as corrugated and braided type line, no rubber. I am wondering if I should be using them or find/make a modern replacement.  How reliable are these old lines? Anyone using them?

Thanks Gary

I just installed a NOS set of lines in my Halftrack. As long as they are flexible the should be fine.

As soon as I get back from vacation I will. Also, check my restoration page. I have some good photos of all the lines.

The flexible lines are 11 1/2" overall.  I am using 1/4" steel brake line w/ flare fittings to make up the steel line from the gauge and between the flex lines.
