    Anyone order up replacement Transmission Cooler Lines from Summit?
    My pops mangled the front going into the radiator when he rebuilt the motor.
    It's been a couple year project having pulled the motor to change the timing chain. While I was at it decided to detail the motor & entire engine compartment including all accessories.

    I got a 383 with 727 - Want to know how well new lines match up.

    I just received an email from Summit about the trans lines I ordered from them the 1st week in January, to let me know a new delivery date of Feb 4th.
    They're being shipped from an outside supplier. Maybe Inline Tube or The Right Stuff.

    I would go with Inline Tube, they did a fantastic job on some brake line copies for my 74.

    And don't be afraid to call them if you don't see what you need in the catalog. They pick up and are really helpful.

    Thanks Dave, I called Inline and they don't show a tranny cooler lines for a Town & Country. I'm assuming it sould be the same as a New Yorker, New Port or 300, but they don't show even show a cross reference for a TC so they can't guarantee it will fit. So the question is - would anyone know for sure whether lines for a NY, NP or 300 would fit correctly on my TC? Their catalogue # is CYT6501 for those models.

    PST does a decent job. Make sure they know your model and maybe what size radiator. I ordered a set. And didn’t one didn’t fit my non AC Polara, it was spaced for a larger radiator. I could not bend it to fit. I used one new and cleaned up one old.

    considering what a roll of 5/16 cu/ni is worth, $75 for the direct fit stainless lines is actually a decent value.

    Summit uses Right Stuff for $39.60 whereas Inlinetube.com uses their own? @ $50 set.
