Oil cooler hose fitting size?

Post by colinc » Sun May 10, 2020 9:13 am

Hi there,

Does anyone out there know what size the fittings are on the oil cooler hoses. I’ve read there are various available and they are notoriously difficult to determine type by simple measurements.

Would take the guess work out of it if someone already knows!

Thank you

Hi Colin,
'Scuse the vagueness but it is a while since I plumbed in the oil cooler. I seem to remember that the Guzzi pipe fitting was an unobtainable size, but the adaptors screwed into the cooler were a standard thread so I replaced the adaptors with standard AN adapters and used the self-assembly AN fittings and pipe. -6 or -8 would be an appropriate size. Choose the pipe carefully because the oil temps can be quite high on the 8V engines.
