Just wondering if the trans cooler lines that go to the radiator, do they already have a flared end that i can push a rubber hose over and seal properly,

or if the lines have a "screw in" fitting thats fixed permanantly on the end of the lines which means i gotta cut them off

I'm not sure if the screw in fittings for the rad are permanently mounted to the lines....

im hoping not, but really dont want to undo them, then find out i need to buy a flaring tool & pipe cutter

i assume the ends are flared, but not too sure if the thread fitting can slide back far enough out of the way to slip a rubber hose over the end

I am 98% sure the ends are flared, however it has been awhile since I had a radiator out.

yeah, their definitely flared. Their the same as brake line fittings. Except their only single flared where brake line fittings are double flared.

cheers, from what i read, single flares wont make a good seal

will the screw fitting be able to be pushed back far enough though?

i want to bypass the radiator into my new trans cooler, and dont wantt o much around with citting and flaring lines if i can get away using the existing ones. Ive heard making a good flare isnt as easy as it looks

You can buy an adapter to screw onto the existing cooler line nut that has a serrated section built onto it - the hose pushes over it, then held on with a hose clamp. They are made specially for BTR cooler kits. Some cooler kits supply them, but are available from most trans places seperately..

Saves cutting & flaring your original pipes.
