Unhappy oil line bolt

I was putting the bolt in the supply line, then boom, broke off in the line like a twig. Worthless bolts. Anybody know if I can pick the hose and the banjo bolt up at home depot. Thanks Guys.

That fitting is a tricky bit to replace. It's metric on oneside and something I can't identify on the other.

This is my solution:

You can also do a search on oil feed and learn more than you ever wanted to know about the greddy oil feed.

Do you mean for the banjo fitting at the turbo? I may have one of those bolts laying around and could drop it in the mail if you need it.

Sorry I thought you meant the fitting at the block.

You can make your own banjo bolt with a drill press, to get you going.

Yeah that is what I am going to have to do for now. I am going to home depot after work to see if I can find something to make it work for now. I alos was looking at the feed line and the ****** is slit right down the side. Gettin pissed about this whole ordeal. Wideopentuning, if you have the supply system for the turbo, I'll buy that off of you. The whole supply system is pretty much junk, It is like a got a used kit that the person had no mechanical knowledge. Thanks for the help guys.

go to a hydraulics/plumbing/hoses supply store and bring what you have in. They'll be able to make something work better than Home Depot. Since that's what they deal with all day.
