MG MGA - Oil pipe filter to rear of block

I need a pipe from the oil filter header to the rear of the engine block ( I have temporarily reused the flex hose that went to the filter, but would prefer to use the correct pipe)

I have been watching eBay but have seen nothing- has anyone got a spare lying around?

All those people who have fitted an oil cooler should have one left over.

Dominic, you sent me a speedometer cable for the postage so I will send you one of the pipes you are looking for at the cost of postage. Sent a private message.

I agree Dominic. IMHO this board is way better than that other one

Make sure it's the right one. The early Talcemite pipes are different from the later ones. They look the same until you go to connect them. Don't ask how I know:)

Are the differences documented anywhere?

And what happens if you try to fit the early pipe to the later application:
