Tried to install oil lines to cooler, right side to short by 7 or 8 inches. Line side oil line while almost correct length has AN6 fitting on both ends. The oil cooler and filter spacer both have AN8 size fittings. Am I missing something here?? Any suggestions?

Looks like you are using the cooler they sent with the engine.  My engine ran hot oil temps and I installed a 13 

row cooler and had Steve at aircraft specialties make me new hoses.  Now the oil temps on my 350is never get

over 200 degrees F. even on a 100 degree day.  I changed it at my 1st condition annual and it was a bit of a job,

but have not been sorry.  Anyway, if you need longer hoses - Steve is great to work with.
