On my 2002 (model not year) I installed an oil cooler using airquip type hoses with the do it yourself connectors similar to those in your kit.
I'm not too bad of a mechanic. I had one of them blow at 60 on the highway. Man what a fright. I went out and had a hose shop make them for me. they have tools I never had. Thats my recommendation. How much could they charge to do it for you. Cant be much. This is all IMO. I'm sure there are guys who have used these hoses without problems, for me its a simple choice. Hope this helps.

I agree with Bob, on all the oil coolers I've set up on Healeys, MGs & Triumphs, I always used swedged connectors done at local hose shops.

I would always cut the hoses a little long and have them press the fitting to one end only. Take it home and route the hose, cut it to length and get the correct orientation of the opposite fitting. Mark the fitting and return to the hose shop.

A little more trouble, but never had a ruptured hose or leaking fitting.
