200tdi in defender oil pipes ?


Recommended Posts

Ive been restoring a modefied 90 with a 200tdi engine and rad setup , the problem is that the oilpipes have been butchered together to make them fit the oil cooler .

Im wondering if there is anyone on the forum with info on where i can get acceptable pipes to use instead of the mess i have on there or should i go and get some fabricated by someone like pirtech etc ?

as you have both ends [metal pipes] you could get Pirtek or similar to reuse these to make new pipes or buy new from LR or Indy LR parts supplier,

the correct hoses depend on chassis number, but as yours is a conversion that won't help, unless you know the last 8 digits of the vehicle the engine/rad came from

info below should help

I drew a blank matching up the original fittings so I replaced the fittings for 3/8"BSPT (Rad side) and 1/2" BSPP (Hose side) ,and had some 1/2" hoses made up and swaged on to the engine side of the fittings .

Cost about half of a genuine set and a better looking job ,

Looks very neat and tidy .

had new oil pipes made up today , went back to get them , looked ok , went home to fit them .. c&*%s fitted the unions 180deg out and 90deg out ...

arse*&%es .. hydrateck in llansamlet .. good price but useless if theyre not right !!!!!!!!!

Again Arse*%&es ! The simple looking youngster who served me said casually "no wurries butt come back in an ower " he had a slightly vacant look about him & i now know that my origial fears of giving him the hoses to be right

Note the yellow markings on the hose and fitting , I brought it all home in peices , Fitted it comfortably and then marked it all , took it all off and back for swaging ;)
