[ROVERNET - UK] 1930s Oil pressure feed line

Some P2's had a braided metal covering for the pipe, similar to that found 
on competition brake pipes.  If you take the old pipe to someone 
specialising in that sort of thing, he will have a sample for the correct 
length and bore size and will possibly be able to crimp the existing ends 
onto new pipe

hope this helps
