GM Oil Cooler line part # ?

Does GM Still offer Genuine GM Oil cooler lines? I have read on the Forums they offered the Genuine GM ones or A/C Delco which are just Chinese knock-off with the "Big Brand" Name on it & Don't even fit correctly. Smh...

I have a pair from an 82 Red Block parts engine but no idea if they are good.

I've read this thread and those who haven't should.

I would just get some made at a hydraulic hose shop then chance Chinese junk, even those made to A/C Delco standards.

I wanna take a look at those old Lines on have on the parts eng, and them determine the condition/test them for leaks.

If they are shot then yes I'll bring to a hydraulic shop and have them put new rubber hose on etc.

I was just thinking, if the hose shop is using Chinese fittings then thats no good, I would spend the extra and get Parker fittings or something U.S. made.


Quadstar, I think he is a member here makes a nice kit. (Acutally it looks like Leroy puts it together)

Thanks, Yeah Someone on my FB 6.2/6.5 Group was talking **** b/c I wanted Genuine GM ones. Like Duh Ofc I do, XD

Anyway, Yeah Ofc U.S Made Fittings. It says on the website for trucks 1997+ style 6.5L trucks & 1992-96 6.2L and 6.5L.
Did the 1982 Year engines have any Differences? Or where they all the same size & fittings from 82-93?

#1 geni GM lines are F'in expensive and will still weep within the year if you get the good ones.


#2 if your aluminum lines are in decent shape any hydro shop can make you hose that will probably out last your truck, way cheaper.


#3 you can reroute the lines how ever you want, add an extra 6.5 oil cooler rad ... all sorts or things, cheap ...

I looked at the lines on that parts engine they are in pretty decent shape, I most likely will take them down to a Hydro Shop and have Either 1. Steel Braided or 2. New Rubber

Depends on the price. Being a little tight with it right now with cash

When its all said and done buying a full cooler kit seems to be the best way. I brought my line ends to a hydraulic shop and with adapters and crimping two hoses with ends it was going to be like $200 That's without a cooler even. This was for the 91 suburban. Ended up finaggling 6.5 ss lines and a factory 6.5 cooler I had on the shelf with some adapters. Worked good but the lines come up almost short like nothing extra to work with. Also I used one 90 and one 45 fitting on the block for some reason iirc had to do with the exhaust manifold.
