transmission cooler line size

Unread postby glacier325 » Tue Apr 09, 2013 2:25 pm

Does anyone know the diameter of the transmission cooling lines, particularly the "out" line? I am anticipating installing an accutemp adapter and itis for 1/2" lines.

Hi Guys,

Look back, I believe Larry already advised the service port location....
maybe a month ago when this came up!

I'd be very cautious when it comes to cutting the high pressure transmission
lines.... they are attached with banjo fittings for a reason. If you do cut
in, please make sure you get barbed fittings, and really good quality, extra
wide clamps..... maybe like the fuel injection type.

Just my 2c.

They actually make a special clamp for that with a little metal arm on it for transmission lines.

Dave,

I did not look at the adaptor you were thinking of using.... that's actually
a pretty cool idea, no line cutting. I would wonder how responsive it will
be, as it is a big heat sink, and you may not see a very responsive gauge.
I'd want to know my transmission temperature fairly quickly if it was rising
into the 230 + temp range, this may mask the start of the rise.

Has anyone used anything like this?

Cheers, Scott

Scott, the info says it reads about 5 to 10 degrees cooler. They also say it's pretty quick. The testpnials are all positive, so once I know if I can get it to fit, I'll give it a try and let everyone know.

Sounds great Dave. I'll see if I can measure the line on my spare drivetrain tomorrow, will advise.Regards, Scott

Sara, no matter what you need to know the condition of the belt before you venture out much.
