Not wanting to spend a lot of cash, I ordered McMaster-Carr No. 50295K272 10mm OD 7mm ID. ID drilled out to 21/64". Still kind of thick. Put a 90 degree bend in about a 6" piece. The fellas in the shop didn't have a metric flaring tool, so they drilled out a 3/8" english flaring tool to accept a 10mm tube. Cut the fitting off the original piece. Slipped it on the 10mm tube as far as it would go around the 90 degree bend. Pre-fit the flaring tool onto tube so we would know how much to cut off the tube. Cut and flare tubing. Attach to oil reservoir and measure how much to cut off the rubber hose end. Added a flare to rubber hose end so I didn't have to use 2 hose clamps.
