Hello, I need to replace the standard transmission cooling lines in my 60 Imperial. I am not sure weather to buy replacements, or make my own.

To ship these to me, total cost is almost $250 Australian pesos.

Has anyone rolled their own?

Steve.

My experience says, they mostly do not fit like stock and they have to bend the *** out of it anyway to ship it. Get a flaring tool and some regular 5/16" steel line!

I made mine out of rubber...since there was nothing with the car. At least as good as metal tubes...no rattling.

I would make my own. It is hard with the common cheap flaring tools to get nice ends, but not all that difficult with a good flaring tool. Bending can be done over large pipe or anything round and sturdy with similar radius. You can even buy a copper alloy tubing here that is much easier to shape than steel lines, but still has a higher burst strength than rubber. Often used for brake lines and meets most jurisdiction dot requirements.

But even the basic cheap hard steel line is fine if you borrow, rent or buy a good flaring tool like Eastwood sells. Cut square ends, deburr, blow out the lines, make a few practice flares on scrap to become familiar with the tool you choose. Mock up some hard wire first and copy the bends off that onto the new line before trying to install them.
