Suggestions re oil feed line...
Hi Guys, did a search and read through many posts. I have just bought a NA 1600 with a TD04 turbo and G3 link.
Within a week of owning it, it has developed a leak from the oil feed line.
I have pulled it apart and it would appear the 10-12 cm (4" approx) rubber hose between the two hard lines has gone hard.
Can some one please suggest a suitable replacement hose for this, I have read all sorts of specs in my search but at the moment this is hard to comprehend due to inexperience AND a different country with (presumably)different systems (metric for a start)....
Is plain braided hose going to handle the pressure /temp?
Is there a brand and model of hose that is specifically suited etc...
If anyone has any links you can insert would be really appreciated so I can see what it is and possibly work out an equivelent....
