    Hey guys, regarding the steel braided line that attaches to the bottom of the oil sump on a 91 348TS...

    Are the end fittings rebuildable? One end of mine is starting to leak and don't want to replace the whole thing if it isn't necessary.

    Thanks,
    LS

    Usually in the vicinity of an airport there is a company that rebuilds hoses for the aviation guys. I have one in my area reuse the old fittings and make new hoses all the time. They are not usually able to source new fittings that work on these cars so if you have a fitting problem they may not be able to help.

    Thanks for the tip. I'm going to stop by a local supplier to see if they can handle it.
