87 300D oil cooler and fuel leak

I just got this car and it has an oil leak from the upper oil cooler hose right at the crimp. I have done some reading and it doesn't sound like I want to try to take the fitting off of the oil cooler as it will probably strip the threads. Has anyone cut the crimp collar off and put new hoses on the fitting and using a good clamp?


The other issue i've got is the injector return hoses are leaking. Well a couple injectors have a little fuel pooled on them. Where is the best place to get new hoses?

Thanks for the help, Aaron

Welcome to the forum!

the injector return lines are a piece of cake. just need a needlenose pliers set and pinch the side of the lines, and they pop right off, then push on new hose. (click the buy parts link at the top of the page)
for the oil cooler lines, some have cut off the crimp, and replaced the hose, but it's hard to find 15mm hose... simplest is the replacement hose set from the buy parts link above, but it can also be taken off, and have a hose company (aeroquip, napa etc...) build you a standard set.

Thanks for the reply, What size hose is the injector hose?

Also I did find the replacement oil cooler hose, but man that is one expensive hose set!
