Mine are leaking at the factory crimp, so I am guessing I have to replace the whole thing. Anyone dealt with this problem? I don't really want to spend the $200 for the part at Ford, so if anyone has any suggestions let me know.
I am confronted with the same issue. All 4 of my crimps are "sweating" oil. I have the 4.6L Romeo and not sure what adapter will work (mounting to block). I know for sure I am not paying $190 for the replacement from the dealer. I have looked at the permacoll kits, not convinced on the hose clamps to hold the hose fittings. I can build a custom asy using peterson/permacool adapters and stainless braided lines for around $200. Still debating.
