The flexable lines connecting to my front oil cooler appear to be leaking. I've decided to replace them. Bentley & 101 Projects recommend heating the connections. 101 Projects says use a small propane torch. I'm not going there. Would it be ok if I got running temp. then loosen the nuts by a half a turn? Then wait a couple of hours to fully remove the lines? Also should I use antiseize compond when I put the new lines on?
