That makes the braided cable a necessity to preserve the integrity of the oil system.

That makes sense. Thanks for 'splainin' it.

Once I looked again at the photo I see there is no valve at the tank end of the line like the QuikValve setup.

Is there any advantage to using a capped line instead of the QuikValve mod? Maybe a slight cost savings?

Both ways are certainly better than the stock method.
