Anyone have any secrets to replacing tranny cooler lines on a YJ? I have been trying to get the stupid fittings threaded for a couple hours now. I was able to get the fittings on w/o the lines in but than I couldn't get the lines to snap in the fittings. With the line on a can't get them started. I really don't want to drop the damn tranny just to get these lines on.

Never done lines on a YJ, so I don't know if there are any specific challenges. If the line flared with a fitting over it, I know it can be a pain to get in there (like on brake lines). Does the flare on the line match the port it's going into? Try pressing the line in straight, then hand tighten the fitting while holding the line, rather than trying to just thread the fitting with the line pushing away....

My best guess is the threads on the tranny side are stripped. Not sure how that happened. They put the holes on some stupid angles and than made the adapters flat and not self centering. I am done with this thing. I am turning it into a barbque grill. I am beyond tired of working on this.

You know if you do that it will make the worst tasting steaks ever, it will always need to be repaired before using it, and it will use fuel as inefficiently as possible. It will still be a jeep.

But you said you could thread the fittings without the line...? Don't blow it up, you're almost there.

I did yesterday. Today when I went out I took off the trans mount and was able to get the back on no problem. The front I got on and tried to get the line snapped in with no success. I tried to get at it with the line off and it will not catch no matter what I do. It bites for a second and than pops out. It seems unlikely that the trans end would strip out over the fitting itself but I am not sure what else it could be.

I parked my tj today. Cracked my manifold recently. It's now broke.

But I started a new job, so in the end all is good.

Good plan Mike. Save as much as you can.

I ordered a Currie track bar bracket that's angled for when I rotate the pinion up. Supposedly shipped today. Debating on whether I need a MML or not. With my super duper short SYE, I can't imagine that I do, unless the tuck ends up nosing the engine down. Almost everyone else that I read about has a MML and/or BL, and I'll have neither.

I had a code in my truck for glow plug on cylinder 4. Much ****ing around to change it, but I got it done.

My buddy brought over a tap and I was able to clean out the threads and the fitting went right in. I have it all put back together. Not getting my hopes up at this point and time but everything looks good. Now to weld my leaky exhaust on my XJ.
