I'M gathering parts to install an external oil cooler on my catera. Does anybody KNOW FOR SURE what the fittings are that the cooler lines terminate at the block? Information tells me they are 18mmx1.5 thread but what I don't know what is the sealing method. Hopefully it is a standard flare on the tubing, against a seat surface in the block. does anybody KNOW.
Any pictures?

This isn't my project or car. I found this on the CateraOwners/Yahoo forum (http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/CateraOwners/). You'll have to join to have access to the file. There might be a simpler way to adapt the cooler's hoses to the Catera's engine block but this should get you started.
