On another note, it's damned hard to find threaded tailends/hose barbs, with a metric thread.

I'm chasing a pair of 3/8 hose barbs with a m14 x 1.5 thread. I want to replace the quick connect fittings on the auto trans oil cooler lines and run hose all the way through to cooler. Both quick connect fittings are weeping. And after all the "quick fixit" jobs on the cooler lines in the past and fitting the cooler, it all looks a bit .... ordinary.
So, I figured I would renew it all and get rid of the leaky bits at the same time. Also, running hose to the trans makes it easy to chop and change with gauges for the trans temp, regards pre and post cooler.

Got mine from Enzed. Gave them my bits and they whipped up the adaptors while I waited. Pirtek should do the same.

I am going to try a mild textured paint, stuff you would normally put on bricks, when I get around to it. I ripped the lining out without removing the headliner out of the car.

Crikey, that woulda been messy.
The reddish brown grunge I brushed off my headliner was horrible, sticky clumpy crap.
How did you manage with it still in the jeep?
I never thought about non automotive paints. Thanks for the heads-up.

Cheers

Took the Coopers off and replaced them with Firestones. The high gearing from the big tires was annoying me, especially when towing, and it will cost big bucks to fix it. They are for sale if anybody wants to make me an offer.

Starting issue fixed, the end blocking line in the injector return was cracked and leeking,

Also fixed the death wobble, the panhard tie rod end was well and truly dead, couldn't get a new one so I put in the new pan hard I had for the ute, it's a different shape though and the tie rod sits level not on an angle

I picked mine up at pirtek.
Just make sure to take the line high over the diff and suspension, I pulled my hose off on a really big nasty bottom out.
