Hey, does anyone know what type and size the fittings are at the oil filter housing
for a 5kT? (I assume KH & MC are the same or at least similar). I'm rebuilding the
motor, and the last motor I built ('65 MGB), everyone I talked to told me to
replace the oil cooler cuz it collects bits of oil crud in there that are impossible to
shake out. Especially w/ a turbo motor that can burn the oil sometimes, I'd like to
do this. But I won't buy the OE one for who knows how many hundred's of dollars.
And it doesn't look that special anyways. My MGB cooler is of the same
sandwiched aluminum plate type, but is much bigger. I was thinking of getting a
universal 13 or 16 row cooler and adapting the oil filter connections to AN fittings
and replace the hoses while I'm at it w/ generic SS AN fitting oil lines. Any BTDT's?
I recall maybe Javad or other's have gone the aftermarket route?? Thanks again
