Good to see this added to the DIY section.

Do you use some kind of teflon tape or sealant on all the threads_

I just used some pipe sealant for the radiator fittings (6an 3/8 inverted flare) even though it probably wasn't needed.The AN fittings for the transmission case need no sealer.The case fitting have either an o-ring already on the fitting (depending on application) or a Teflon gasket comes with the fitting for early 4L80E,TH700,400 and 350 transmissions.

Thank You

Thank you Sir, very nicely done as a project and write up. Much appreciated.
I upgraded mine following your examples on my 96 only I went stupid with braided. Always wanted to do that. Advice to others...don't...it's stupid IMHO...unless you're really motivated.
FWIW; Fittings sizes for a 1996 equipped with the Aux. Cooler.
- Aux. Cooler Fittings: 3/8 NPT
- Rad. Fittings: 5/16 Inverted Flare
- Trans Fittings: 1/4 NPS though some 'advice' I got was 1/4 NPT. Either works as in the fitting will thread. NPT stops early and with the female threads not tapered, may not give you the seal. With NPS, be sure to use the type pictured in posts #6 with the washers that create the 'bonded seal'.

Project is looking pretty good though I still have to tighten down and separate the lines at the transmission. Right now they're just threaded on from when I called it a night yesterday. For the detail oriented, the photo at the Radiator was done earlier in the week as a staged photo. I used the pressure line at the top position (red tape for 'Hot' output) as I hadn't made up the actual return line yet.

I still need to secure the lines using the protective hose clamps shown in Post #8. Am I'm seeing that picture correctly in that you ran your lines to the back and then up to the front?

Again, my thanks. It was a good learning experience and I appreciated your write up here and in your build thread.

Agreed. I'm not mechanically inclined, certainly not intuitive. I read, study, build my own instructions, screw it up and start over etc. These lines alone took me the better part of two weeks given time available and waiting for the right parts to come in. I sent back a lot of incorrect ones yesterday 5/16-18 O-Ring fittings, 1/4" NPT fittings, Center Caps from another project ...a whole bunch o' stuff. Thing is to take your time, be patient and take it easy on yourself when you make mistakes. You should see the pile of cut zip ties from just last night and today trying to secure them 'just so.' Oh well, I could be drinking.

Lines are now right and tight.

Thanks again DieselOlds, I wouldn't have had the courage to try without your write up.

Agreed, very nice write up for the layman to understand.

I linked it in DIY and FAQ's a couple days ago.

That explains it. I read through the build thread some time ago. Then earlier this month I came back and had to use 'search' to locate it and comb through a few pages to get to the transmission lines. Then a few days later, having failed to bookmark it, it pops right up in Search as first hit.
Thank you.

Coming from you, that's high praise in deed. The '78 K20 must have shown the stainless lines off very nice with all the room/visibility in those engine bays. I very much enjoyed your work on the build thread and, like I mentioned, it inspired me to try a bit on my own.
