Hey guys while putting me engine back in last night and this morning, I've managed to split one of the lines, could I put some silicone on it or would it be better to replace?

Thanks.

You will need some transmission hose. Go to Pirtek or Enzed and get some.

in a moment of emergency it will work and get you to a destination but the trans fluid will eat away at the hose causing failure..

you can get transmission hose from repco, peps, bursons ect...
