Cooler line idea...P/G

#1 Post by Bruce69Camaro » Mon Jan 23, 2012 11:03 am

I had a thought and if anyone has done this, please let me know how it worked.

I'm getting ready to pull my P/G out and I just hate messing with tranny fluid, so I thought, what if I installed ball valves on the inlet and outlet cooler lines with a male #6 fitting to connect to my braided lines.

I was thinking if I came off of the tranny with a short section of steel line, then into a 1/4" full flow ball valve, then when I wanted to pull the tranny, shut the valves off and disconnect them and this would save the fluid inside the tranny.

I guess if I really wanted to, I could put ball valves on the braidsteel lines as well to save the fluid inside of them.

Would this idea work???

I was doing some reading and it sounds like there are some mixed opinions on the quick connect tranny line fittings, so this made me think.... :scratch:
Those who think they know it all have no way of finding out they don't......... :scratch:

Quick connect couplings will do the same thing and take up less space...

Probably some hydraulic quick connects that would work, maybe swagelock brand might be cheaper. No more often than you'll be yanking the transmission though, not sure if it's worth it?
