When I had the oil cooler lines replaced on my '89 200 TQ,
Northern European suggested removing the oil cooler with
the lines, as more often than not (in the northeast snow and
salt belt), the lines are corroded onto the cooler, and trying
to remove the lines trashes the cooler.  They ended up
putting on a used cooler and lines (and one of those lines later
blew off the coupling; so I ended up putting in an aftermarket
cooler with oil lines secured with regular hose clamps. See
