Transmission line

I had the rubber line on my 78 split by radiator side. It's the passenger side if that matters. Is this something that can be replaced by a regular line or so I have to order a replacement line like came factory on the jeep. Also it's a 304 v8 if that makes a difference also.

Just make sure you use hose that is rated for trans fluid.

You need transmission line and a plumbers pipe cutter to get the crimped fitting cut off. If you use a saw to cut the pipe, the burrs and rough edge it leaves eats the new hose up fast, a plumbers pipe cutter makes a clean smooth cut. I then use 2 of the high pressure band clamps to be sure it stays put.

Better yet, after you cut the hard line and debur it use a flaring tool to put a bubble (bump) in the line so the hose is less likely to slip off. It's not like it will slip off without the bump but it's an added insurance.
