164 24v oil cooler pipe

Hi,
Does anyone know the pipe/connector spec for a 1994 164 3.0 24v - oil cooler to engine?

Suggest he take the old one and have it remanufactured at a hydraulic hose place. That's what I did.

Good thinking and would go that route except only have access to the one car and no local hose places so would need to post the old ones.

here in USA we have these 'mobile hydraulic hose repair trucks' that come out and fix em on the spot. This is particularly important for big earth-moving equipment etc. I will bet that Larry at APE in northern California has a set to sell; not sure about whats available on your side of the pond.

Thanks guys.

Mobile repair people are massively expensive and makes no sense when able to remove/replace the pipes myself.

Erik, will look into getting OEM parts thanks to those part numbers.

There are also tuning companies selling reasonably priced oil cooler joints for clip on pipes, probably stronger than OEM pipes - just need to know the thread/nut sizes before ordering.

Hi, where did it break?
I do not believe that there is nowhere to make such a pipe in the UK.

After a while, these oil hoses start to weep . Usually it's in the hose body, not the connectors but sometimes there are leaks there and st the screw connections themselves.

Hi,
Thanks for info.
They haven't broken but have been weeping for the last 10 years - sort of made me think there could be a risk of breakage. Pre-emptive repair/replacement being the preferable option.
Evengy, there are places in the UK to get these made up - just not near me, hence the desire to get replacements before take the originals off.

Some time ago I met suggestions on eBay.it But now I do not see them.

On The Dutch 164 site there was a recent report of a member changing this. As I just registered I can not post the link here yet.

Was debating going the same route. Have been looking at standardised fittings and couplings for all this though at the end of the day I'll probably just send off existing pipes for new ones to be made up as they are quite unique
Maybe check out Demon Tweaks, a company based in Wales, as they offer several connectors/adapters.
Good luck and let us know how you get on.
