Default TRS oil cooler line fittings...

Are there any restriction issues with these stock fittings? the lines are 5/8" and the fittings are big, I am chasing some issues that could be oiling and want to know how these fittings are, they have been fine for 21 yrs but just getting opinions.
Do they make a nice radiused fitting so I can keep my stock hoses?

You want -12 or run the bigest lines you can do not run anything smaller than you have now. I have to replace all my line too. do you have a parker store around they will help you.

I am not looking for smaller, I am just making sure this should be fine, like I said, it is factory 400 Merc.. I figure it should be fine, i can redo oil system over winter if needed, I cannot get into it now being in the middle of July.. $$$$

Your stock oil lines are fine.increasing in size will not change anything. The bell housing cooler will only move so much oil. Good luck with it....
