’32 Update: Transmission Cooler Lines (article 30)

Transmission Cooler Lines

The next addition to the a/c line clamp/ tranny cooler lines/ wire cover is making a tranny cooler return line.  Instead of using tube nuts and sleeves on the tranny end of the tubes, I got stainless -6AN fittings, cut them in half, counter bored them for 3/8″ line, and welded them on.  Here’s how they turned out:

The tabs going from the top tube to the bottom tube with the hole in them are actually lengths of the stainless tubing hammered flat.  The next big challenge is snaking the hoses through the clamps.  I still have to fine tune the radiator ends and install tube nuts.
