I have a complete oil cooler setup I was thinking about selling.  I'm not sure if that helps you or not.
68 1/2 CJ Mustang GT FB auto 3.91s, 68 1/2 CJ Torino GT FB 3.91s, 2 57 Thunderbirds, 61 Thunderbird, 64 Falcon Sprint conv. 4Spd, 65 Falcon Sedan Delivery, 67 Fairlane 500 SW 428 4Spd, 68 Torino 4dr, 95 T bird SC. My 58 Thunderbird got rear ended by a RETARD on his phone!!!

It has to be original? You do remember that Cowls repoped those awhile back right? I don't know what he did with the dates on the hoses? Hey Jim?

Yes original

OK. You have your reasons.

I don't have any but let me just point out that you are past their useful life by about 20 years. They will dry rot on the inside near the hose ends. You can no longer bend them at all. They will crack through the bend.

I found my odd oil line tim but i think its the long hose.  I been reusing & replating original oil lines on scjs & bosses over the years & only had a couple of them leak but i got several extra spare sets in case one leaks & u can sometimes tell by looking at an oil line if it could leak. Repos are not even close.

Thanks for your opinion. I have replated and reused probabaly 10-15 pairs over the years and only had one hose fail (the one Iím looking for). Iíll take my chances with 50 year later old Aeroquip hoses

Just this week I needed to replace two. Best of luck to ya'. Now I need to do my tires. Those are only 35 years old. They just don't make stuff like they used to?
