Scimitar se5a oil pressure feed pipe?

Post by pdedsddd » Sun Dec 08, 2019 6:39 pm

Hi everybody, heard that there is a braided pipe replacement for the old plastic oil pressure pipe. Which as I found out makes quite a mess under the bonnet😂When it breaks.
Does any body know where I can get the braided pipe & fitting for the engine block? Think the engine end is 1/8 n.p.t & pipe connection 1/8 b.s.p ???
Cheers men , Paul👍

Just remember to insulate it behind the dash board when you fit it

It`s not the Block fitting that matters, it`s the adaptor that the pipe screws onto.

There are Two distinct types.
I have one that`s Metric and another that`s Imperial. :w

I’m going through this exact scenario on another thread...... The fitting that sticks out of my block appears to have a 10 x 1.5 mm thread on. It’s too tight to remove, so I need a hose to go on it.

If you get a proper Hex socket on it it Will unscrew.
I have removed a few over the years and they have always unscrewed.
They are a very robust item. :wink:
