Default Oil Supply Line

Started loosing oil throught the supply line. Stuping thing was rubbing against a clamp bolt. Just not my f-ing day. (see my recent post in General Miata section)
Any one got a spare GReddy oil supply line?

Must be the day for it. Mine starting spraying oil mist all over my downpipe today. Only discovered it by the puffs of smoke coming out from under the bonnet

Mine isn't the standard GReddy one though, it's a Goodridge -3AN hose so thankfully simple enough to fix, so long as I can get the bloody thing off without taking the entire turbo off...

the stock one uses weird fittings on each side. When mine broke I ordered the oil line and block fitting from FM.

You are better off with a more standard and easier to source line and fittings anyway.

I've already replaced the block fitting when i snapped it during the install.
it was -3AN as well. So I am hoping that it will be a direct replacement.

To help keep that from happening again take a slightly larger I.D. rubber hose, split it down the middle, and wrap the oil feed line with it. Secure with zip ties. You lose the bling factor but you don't have to worry about it rubbing against anything.
