Auto Trans Line Material

I'm replacing the rubber(?) line from my radiator to the tranny. What kind if line do you use for auto trannys? Will regular rubber fuel line work? If not, is the fluid not compatible with the rubber or is it the pressure?

Thanks,
John

Re: Auto Trans Line Material

Do not use regular fuel line for this. They make a rubber trans hose. It is about twice as thick as fuel line and holds up forever. I woild recomend steel lines out of the trans to as close as you can get to the cooler. Then run the rubber lines.

Re: Auto Trans Line Material

1. Fill out your profile, it helps to get an accurate answer.
2. Use replacement brake line sections and a flaring tool. Cheap, easy, and done. You should be ablt to go from the AT to the Cooler with solid line on a OEM radiator.

Re: Auto Trans Line Material

I bought replacement lines that screw into the radiator and into the hard lines running from the transmission. Is your auto swapped in or stock?

Re: Auto Trans Line Material

I have a OEM TF999 that I just rebuilt. I ran new cooler lines using the brake line material.

I bought prebent stainless. I think they were from Classic Tube. Rust is a problem here and I wanted to only fix
them once.
