Question:
I have a 1275 with an oil cooler that slides in behind the car grill and under the alternator. From looking at the front of the car: On the left side of the cooler, I have the pipe that goes from the top of the oil filter to the "inlet" on the cooler. This is a heavy rubber hose with two large fittings attached. On the right side I have a 90 degree fitting, with a male thread. I am missing the pipe. I need to buy the other pipe with the proper length and correct fittings. The fittings should be a female thread on the oil cooler end, and a male thread to go back into the block.
Answer:
The oil cooler on a Mini only ever came equipped with rubber lines. A metal line would crack as the engine moves in relation to the cooler that is mounted to the body, Your choice is either the braided lines you have seen or these:

LUBRICATION - Temperature critical
Created: February 03, 2011
The correct running temperature of the oil is perhaps even more important than the water/coolant temperatures - so let us consider how to control them. Mainly because it seems to be the most misunderstood of the whole process, and oil cooler fitment almost a reflex when over-heating occurs where a tuned engine of any type is concerned. And in many cases on standard production road cars for that matter.
