Oil cooler ports @ oil filter. Can you plug them with bolts temporarily?

Hi,

Anyone know what bolt size/thread pitch I need to block the 2 oil cooler ports. Where the lines usually thread in. I need to replace the cooler and lines but cannot afford it right now. Times are tough. The leak is severe and i need my 900 to drive to work.

I was thinking id just plug the 2x ports with some bolts and coat the threads in white PTFE paste.

Or does anyone make a loop kit that just is short piece pipe that closes the circuit right at the oil filter plate. Like a soft bend with 2 fittings to close it off. Thanks in advance.

Barb and a couple hose clamps (available at any hardware store). Cut your existing hoses above your leak and join them together with the barb. Hard to make any better suggestions without seeing where your leak is
