Oil Cooler Pipes

Post by rincewind23 » Fri Apr 26, 2019 8:01 am

Hi all,
I've got a Land Rover 90 with a Disco 3.9 v8 in it. The guy who owned it before me (who presumably did the conversion) decided to replace the radiator but keep the oil cooler bit.. It's just hanging there looking broken so now I'm looking to fit a Mocal oil cooler. When I removed this cooler, one of the pipes into the timing cover is 'normal', the other has a strange hole/plug end:

My question is: Can I just plug the existing holes and use a sandwich plate to take off to the oil cooler? Or do I need to use this special connector as pictured? I've done some research online but the results are inconclusive. I think I have an intermediate serp timing cover, and I've seen reference to this pipe bunging the 'easy way' for the oil, but nothing as to whether I can use a sandwich plate instead.

Cheers,
Kev.

For some reason the forum wouldn't let me attach two images to the initial post, so this is what I mean by 'just the oil cooler bit' :D
