I noticed in the "Periodical Checks and Adjustments" chapter of the Workshop Manual, that the oil circulating tubes should be changed every 16,000kms, or at least every 3 years.

Has anybody actually done this?

Can anyone suggest a reason why they should be replaced?

It could have been the advertisements you placed in the "Man looking for another man" section of your local paper. Or, hell, he could be a stalker. Better change your gearing to 15/43 or so for some fast getaways!!!!!!

I heard some things about you Aussie's when the sun gets hot!:rolling: :rolling: :rolling:

Not sure why you would want to change the oil lines, as long as the oil & filter is changed reguarly there is no reason to change

I would think that after a 100 000 miles or so if/when you are doing a rebuild to freshen up the engine; you might want to check and/or clean the oil lines.

The only other time would be either to repair damage to the tubes and/or if something in your engine breaks you may want to clean out the big chunks of crap to regain good clean oil circulation.
