    OK...

    I got a leak in the factory oil cooler lines in Insane Ewok, and that is what caused the engine to go (ran out of oil)... that leak came on while I was driving it, and when I found it I was too late...

    anyway I am wondering if anybody has tried the braided lines for this application, and was wondering where I could get some / what would be recommended to use.

    I've used them for an oil cooler before - I used Aeroquip AQP hose and fittings from Summit, cost around $80 total.

    Or you could cut heater hose lengthwise and use it for wear protection. That's how I did my tranny cooler lines through the radiator support. HTH

    we use them on helicopters so i dont see why they wouldnt work at 60 to 100 PSI.
    i had some made for my Trans and no problems there. they are great for fuel too. so i dont see why they wouldnt work on oil
