    Looks like one of my oil cooler lines might be leaking right behind the shroud. Havent taken the shroud off yet so im not sure where the leak is. Anyone ever replace these lines before and know how much they cost? Or any one have one around?

    yep, easy to replace, just did one last week. expensive though. could only find the part from the dealer. if you look at the end that goes into the radiator the upper one is about $85 and the lower one is $104
    i have a 82 6.2 k5 blazer
    here is the GM part numbers i used
    upper: 12472186
    lower: 14036781

    the lines i got did not include the right angle into the cooler though! that must be a different part number.

    yea, mine leaked at the engine though. i think you mught be able to buy those 90 degree ends that do into the radiator separate though. i don't think you want to bypass the radiator. my engine has enough trouble cooling when the heat hits high nintys and its working hard
