Default What Vicegrip Does To Oil Lines

Vice is upgrading the oil cooler in my car, from a Trombone to a Carrera front mounted cooler "CSF". In doing so he is blowing out the oil lines as well, after 40 years they got crimped from other people lifting it up the wrong way.

The worst crimp in the line was directly under the lift point, it was actually flat. I don't think any oil was going through that line at all.

I will post more pictures as I get them.

T stat not broken. Ham fisted work but none of the notches are through. The fix in this case is Bill has a nice shiny new updated one that is going in.
