Replacing oil cooler lines

Just had a oil cooler line fail and luckily saw the smoke screen behind me. I see oil pouring out at the filter so I am assuming the quick connect fitting failed. I will check to be sure next week. Just had it towed in and parked it.

Reading on these quick connects on the oil lines, I want to just replace them. Anyone cut the line and replaced the quick release the adaptor fitting with compression flare nut fittings?

Or spliced in a short length of braided line with AN fittings?

Should be able to replace this engine in a few weeks and DO NOT want this to happen again and ruin my new engine. So looking to upgrade to something I can trust. Want to use this as a tow vehicle and sure don't want an issue in the middle of nowhere.

BTW Post in the engine section too
