[V8] Drippy oil pressure lines

First find out exactly where they are leaking -- haven't seen this situation
on any of my V8s.  Spray some brake kleen from one end of the hoses to the
other.  Only place other than the o-rings would be the fittings themselves.
Perhaps Bruce or Keith at Audiconnection would have a nice used set for
you -- bet they would.



PS:  Congrats on the TB and WP service -- while not particularly difficult,
it is time-consuming.
