Transmission cooler line setup

I’m not a technical guy in any way ( at least
building cars). But I recently got this passion
for old American trucks, so I bought one from y
and got it delivered to Stockholm. The first thing
I noticed was that it was too tight between the
steering and the seat. I almost couldn’t fit.
What the heck did I buy!!!!! So I started doing
some research one how to make it “modern “.
The progress is doing well, and now I just finished
setting the hydraulic cooler hoses.
I need some positive feedbacks (negative also
respected)

Re: Transmission cooler line setup

It looks good to me, provided the inner line isn't too close to the exhaust. I just put headers on my old Buick and I'm debating between soft lines and bending up some copper-nickel.

I see what you mean. I read that the hoses
need a distance of 6” from the exhaust.
Too be secure I mounted my headers to be
sure, and I’m satisfied with it. Thanks for the
input.

I wouldn’t use copper lines, I believe the
oil is too aggressive

Thumbs up Re: Transmission cooler line setup

Personally I would run hard lines from the radiator to the transmission use the rubber hose for both ends to connect it. Run the lines up in the frame rail and hide them out of sight. The hard lines will be much smaller also which will give you more room.

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

Re: Transmission cooler line setup

Looks good I like the custom separation brackets, also you may need to protect the hoses once the inner fender is in place. What was your solution for interior modern updates? Custom seat, and steering wheel changes?

Re: Transmission cooler line setup

Will the inner fender still fit?

Yes, new power steering, fuel tank in the frame, hydraulic brake, automatic transmission, new seats (Volvo, I need some Swedish parts)

Definitely want to see the pics of Volvo seats in the truck.

That's what I was wondering...? Other than that, I kinda like it. But I would never run without those inner fenders...

Re: Transmission cooler line setup

I would just put some DEI reflective sleeves on the lines where they are close to the exhaust. They make it with Velcro so you won’t have to disconnect the lines. I have used this stuff with success on turbo cars at much closer proximety.
