A local garage up the street let me use his tubing bender for free to tweak the lines in several places. It certainly needed a little bit here and there. No leaks now, so everything up front should stay dry.

And I feel better now having new upper/lower radiator hoses. The old ones were not only soggy, but barely clamped on, about the width of the hose clamp. New belts, too.

Now you know why I bend my own.
Store-bought setups nearly always need tweaking and they're expensive (tubing is cheap). Glad to hear your lines and hoses are all good with no leaks. - Dave

Like I mentioned before, I thought they would already have the rubber hoses CRIMPED on them for the price I paid.

John, do they even do that? I mean, I don't think I have ever seen trans lines with crimped hoses. I think it's because these lines are not high pressure. - Dave
