View Full Version : General Purpose Oil Cooler Hose?

The situation is the truck blew the OEM cooler hose last year sometime,
and it has two, one of which is like $100 or thereabouts.

For this reason I replaced both with standard 1/2" ID rubber tubing,
however I found out the other day that I need a special type of a rubber as my
truck blew that wide open and dropped roughly 4.5 quarts of oil down the road.

I did, in the meantime, splice the connection with a new standard rubber hose
in such a way that I closed the loop, in effect bypassing the cooler but I don't
expect this to hold maybe a few weeks.

So what I need is 10 feet of Synthetic Reinforced Rubber Hose rated for 300 psi for my truck's oil cooler.

I have googled and searched and crawled to China and back, all to little avail.

Does anyone know where I might order this BS?

Again: 10 feet
Synthetic Reinforced Rubber Hose
300 psi (250 might work)
Specific purpose: Oil cooler hose, hot petrol transfer.

Aeroquip catalog at http://murdockindustrial.com/bullitins/hpcat.pdf . Some of them are designed for 300 degree continuous while the 100R5 is designed for 250*.

Why waste time and money trying to rig it up? Just buy the correct hose from the dealer, or take the entire line to somewhere that can replace it with hydraulic hose and crimp the ends. In Farmville there is a place called Cavalier Hose that does it, and I think they also have a place in Richmond.

Transmission hose with braided SS in it.

I appreciate the help, I did run to NAPA after talking to a local guy, and went
looking for hydraulic line, but then I found I don't have the crimping tool...

However, they had in stock 1/2" ID oil cooler line $5 a foot.
Why it didn't show that online, or I don't recall it did...
Anyhow I got 10 feet of that, cut it in half, put it on, added some oil, and it's fixed.

That's cool, but even with the wrong hoseS that I got I'm only out $100 ...
I understand it would have been as well just to pay the $200 in terms of time, too.
But it just pisses me off this crap, two OEM lines $200 bucks...

Anyhow...
Thanks again for all the help!

Wow what kind of truck is it. Most coolers are low PSI lines just to cool the fluid.
