oil pressure line

After an oil pressure line for my V6 i have the metal part but would like a factory plastic line with fittings that goes from the metal line to the oil pressure gauge. If anyone has one they wanna sell let me know.
Cheers
Matt

    Auto accessory stores usually have them as their a generic line for after market oil gauges. My last one cost about $14 for my mk1 Mex replica

    Yeah i probably will do that to get it on the road, but thought the factory line was moulded or something.

    Thanks for the help guys, tried all local auto shops and unfortunately the fitting doesnt fit the oil pressure gauge, so still chasing an original.

    I bought my new black plastic line from ebay seller mattzyx , current listing.....
    eBay item number:
    153175973581
     
    Mates up OK with the gauge.
    NOTE THAT the new line has different style fittings at either end (IIRC!!) - one tapered, and one with a flat face + small fibre washer I think.
     
    And then an adapter from ENZED pipe people for the join between metal engine pipe and that end of the new line.
    Make sure you take the engine metal line and the new plastic one with you to the shop !!!
     
    I decided I was pushing my luck after 48 years on the original (now hard) plastic line.
     
    Good luck

    Something like this should have all the connectors to fit the gauge side ... As the gauge is near identical to escort GT dash gauge, it gotta work...
