so I finally replaced my radiator after it has been blown for the last 2 years. finding the correct brass replacement with factory oil cooler for a decent price wasn't easy, and I ended up getting one for a slightly newer model (1.25" upper hole instead of 1.5". no biggie, i made it work).

after the install, I noticed that the oil lines for the cooler are now leaking pretty bad. I guess the old rubber didn't like being moved around so much. they are leaking where the rubber hose meets the fittings.

Does anybody know where to get hose replacements? Or maybe the GM Part numbers?

all my searching yields no usable results. i am thinking I am going to have to have hoses made. The hoses are a high pressure nylon braided hydraulic hose and the fittings say 13/32, so I think that is a -8 hose. the hard lines that come from the cooler adaptor and from the radiator are fine, so I just need the hoses with the threaded fittings.
