    AN adapters for M60 oil lines

    I know I came across the -12 AN adapters somewhere, but I didn't save it and now I can't find them. All I come across when searching is the -10 stuff for the 6 cylinders. Does anyone know who it is that sells the V8 ones?

    These are the 6cyl ones in case you don't know what I'm talking about.

          I ended up welding AN bungs directly to a X3 oil manifold. check out my build thread.
          If anyone feels like making a proper adapter to the oil filter housing, shut up and take my money. i welded AN bungs to the oil filter housing plugs with the o rings on them. and it sucks.

            I did an s62 swap into an e34 last year, and one of the worst parts was getting those dumb lines to work. I ended up braising some AN fittings onto cut factory lines, and that was like my 4th attempt to make it work.

              Still -10 though. OP is looking for -12's.

                There used to be some reasonably priced adapters on US ebay, I don't see them anymore. There's some expensive ones oversees.

                I used AN fittings welded onto an X5 plate on the engine side, and brazed fittings onto the hard line ends on the filter side. It's been 7 years and 45k miles without any issues. I know it's not as nice as a purpose built 1 piece adapter, but it works, it's cheap, and you'll never really see them anyway.

                  I had the numbers mixed up in my head, -10 is the correct size for the V8 still (was thinking 12mm). Its the o-ring side that doesn't work with the regular adapters, as the V8 is a 14mm oring and the 6cyls are 13.4mm.

                    Ah, ok.

                      Hopefully he can make you some more or send you files to have them made at your local machine shop.
