Had lots of fun getting the new trans cooler lines installed. There's no front fenders or wheel wells on it yet, which helps. I had to remove the starter, the radiator, the condenser, fan shroud etc, to get room to fish the lines in along-side the engine. They did fit fairly good though, with a little tweaking and bending by hand. They were made for a Chevy engine of course, maybe a big block, since it's a TH400 trans. The Caddy engine mount is different, and I had to tweak that area of the lines. Of course I should have installed them before bolting the engine in, isn't hind-sight wonderful !! The lines came from Inline Tube, who have been great with help on the front stainless brake hoses. They are making them to the length I need. The stock hoses I bought locally were too short for some strange reason, so I opted for the stainless shielded type, since many folks claim that the brakes seem more responsive without the rubber types expanding under pressure. We'll see.........
