Oil Lines

Alright!
I've been working like crazy in my project and now I'm at the point where is time to think about the oil lines.
what do people recommend in terms of line size?
The other issue I'm having is to figure out what fittings I'll need. I have no idea what size I need to get those. When I got the project everything was new in plastic tubs and somethings like the oil tank ni idea of who made it or where was it purchased.
Are those normally one size no matter who made it? is it a Pipe thread?

any guidance will be appreciated

What fittings do you have on the oil tank? that is what you need to go by..does it have screw on fittings? Measure the hole....or if it has fittings you can compress aluminum foil around the fitting
(make a nut) then unscrew it and take it to a tractor place and have a hose made..I have done that..many times..or if you can determine the fitting size, JEGS has lots of custom hoses.......no it will be fine threaded..

I use 3/8 black OIL lines from regular auto stores with stainless screw clamps. Simple and effective. Didn't even bother with cosmetic end cups that one can order in bulk: They also utilize the screw type clamp inside.

I don't have any leaks.

In the past i tried stainless braided lines- too much drama for my taste.

+2 calling steinbvgs stupid...and cheap.
Love skotchbrite on aluminum. Better look than polish to me.
Never thought of removing oil line lettering. Sounds like a good idea.
