Flexible Transmission Cooler Lines

Having trouble finding "Flexible Transmission Cooler Lines" to use for my 4L65E transmission?

I thought I found some at Summit "Advance Adapters Flexible Transmission Cooler Lines 23-1500-60" but when I called "Advance Adapters" they told me they don't make any lines for the 4L60's series.

Is my only option to make my own?

Re: Flexible Transmission Cooler Lines

Check EBay, I saw a bunch of kits the last time I looked. Just confirm the fitting sizes. Just a thought.

If you can find the correct size AN fitting for your transmission and oil cooler, you can make your own with the proper braided line

Re: Flexible Transmission Cooler Lines

Pretty sure the fittings on the transmission are 9/16 o-ring. Took me a while to figure that out on my 4L65E.

Re: Flexible Transmission Cooler Lines

I might look into this place since I need fittings for the entire swap?

Anyone use them before?

I have not heard of these guys. I used the Orme brothers when I needed hose/fittings etc. I had them make up the hose for me. They are TOP NOTCH. https://ormebrothers.com/

Hi Don,

May I confirm this is what you are describing that I will need to use something like these at the connection points on the 4L65E?

One word of caution on the Ebay kits. I ordered a kit that was supposed to be good for transmission lines. It said so right in the listing. Once I got the hose I looked it up online and the hose they sent was not rated for transmission fluid. They did refund my money however.

I used braided line and there were adapter fittings that screwed into the transmission. These are the fittings I used on my 4L70E.

This is the hose:

It looks like that but they donít spec the thread pitch etc. I will look later to see if I can find it.

Re: Flexible Transmission Cooler Lines

So just took a quick look at my transmission.

Do I remove these fittings to use the ones Don is recommending or is there a fitting that works with these stock ones?

Re: Flexible Transmission Cooler Lines

I was never able to find a compatible adaptor so I removed those. That doesnít mean they donít exist, it just means I couldnít find them.

Re: Flexible Transmission Cooler Lines

Remove those fittings & buy a set of -6 fittings for the 4L60/65E trans.
They should be 1/4" NPT straight thread.

Then buy some stainless braided teflon lines & fittings & build your own.

I ran braided lines full length instead of any hard lines.
You can also get a lot of aux trans coolers with -6 AN fittings on them, making the install very easy.

My hoses ended up with 90's on the trans end & straight fittings on the cooler.

Re: Flexible Transmission Cooler Lines

Lots of opinions and guidance here. It seems I am in the minority so go with the majority.
