- Need to assemble your own custom oil hose?
- We have the individual parts you need including hose ends and hose to assemble the specialized oil hoses for your Porsche.
These hose ends fit the same 22mm or 7/8 inch ID hose as our 30mm metric hose ends. That let’s you make a single hose with 30mm fitting on one end and AN-16 on the other. You can then connect AN-16 coolers and fittings to your 30mm Porsche cooling system without the need for adaptors.
Our AN-16 hose ends are crimp-on-type and have hose barb for use with 22mm or 7/8 inch ID hose. The appearance is visually similar to our 30mm hose ends. All hose ends include one crimp collar and one tube nut.
This same 30mm size is typically used for 65-71 911s when retrofitting and external oil cooler.
Our 30mm hose ends are crimp-on-type and have hose barb for use with 22mm or 7/8 inch ID hose. All hose ends include one crimp collar and one tube nut.
Crimp collars fit 32mm OD hoses including all on this page, and may be ordered separately. Crimping requires a specialized tool and can be performed by Elephant Racing or a local hydraulic hose repair shop or many automotive AC repair shops.
Make Custom Oil Lines To Fit Your Needs
Black Cloth Oil Hose – Hose has an outer sheath of black cloth with a green ribbon. Internal core is reinforced with a wire mesh for superior abrasion protection and crush resistance. The outer cloth prevents chaffing of contacted bodywork. Rated for motor oil, 5000 psi, and 300F.
Lightweight Oil Hose – Black fiber outer sheath has a green and orange ribbon. Similar to the Black Cloth Oil Hose, but does not have an internal wire mesh. Rated for motor oil, 5000 psi, and 300F.
Braided Steel / Zinc RSR Oil Hose – This is the exact hose used in the 73 RSR racecars. Hose has an outer sheath that is zinc plated steel, with an orange ribbon. Zinc plating has a dull finish that is retro-original. This is what you want for an RSR restoration or re-creation. Rated for motor oil, 5000 psi, and 300F.
Save Expensive Thermostats And Oil Lines
It’s a common problem when removing oil lines from the external thermostat. The aluminum thermostat threads become fused to the steel tube nut that secures the oil lines. If you get enough leverage to force the nut free, it takes the aluminum threads along with it – destroying the expensive thermostat and the oil line.
Elephant Racing has the solution; we are manufacturing a 30mm tube nut replacement kit that let’s you save thermostats and oil lines. If your oil lines won’t come free from the thermostat, use a cut-off wheel to slit the side of the tube nut. You can then break the nut free using a cold chisel. This technique sacrifices the tube nut to save the expensive thermostat.
You then use our kit to replace the tube nut that was cut off. Both the oil line and the thermostat are saved.
The kit provides a 2-piece tube nut. The threaded nut fits over the end of the tube and is slipped on first. A spring lock ring is then slipped on. The spring lock ring cinches down on the tube, preventing the nut from coming off.
