My cooler sprung a leak and the one off my parts truck wont fit because of different ways of the cooler hoses seal (o ring on 93). I am going to take the opportunity to change the fluid/filter, cooler lines, broken kickdown cable as well as the cooler. I want to use a aftermarket cooler and hydraulic hoses. Anyone know what type of fitting I need for the hoses for the transmission side and a good cooler to use? i have a big trip coming up in Sept and really need to get this sorted, I have everything but the cooler and hose.

On a few of my rigs I have bypassed factory tranny coolers and fitted RV coolers. RV coolers are normally designed to be fitted in line with the factory setup, but I never had any difficulties. Visit your local RV/Motorhome/Travel trailer shop and get the biggest unit offered with standard tubing... no threaded fittings. These usually have a small flair for input and exit allowing for flex lines to be worm clamped in place. A couple of long nylon fitting "zip tye" the unit to and through your radiator and A/C.

Back up note, flush your tranny before starting all this so that you have fresh fluid in your convertor before dropping the pan. :thumb:

Thanks for the advice, I was thinking of using hose clamps and the flair type input/output cooler. I need to replace the lines too, maybe I can get a rad shop to put a flair on the hard lines coming from the tranny so I can clamp hoses on them too ? What about hose, would normal cooler hose do or should I stick with the hydro stuff?
