That says it all, had a customer go to several hose places and it is a no go, but they are willing to put hose clamps on it or cut the line up and weld fittings on there.

I am looking for a place around Atlanta that can do this, trying to get this car done by Friday and have a long way to go.

Look in the Alpharetta phone book, there is a place near the mall, on maxwell road i recall, that built mine in the past. They specialize in hydraulic line assembly and rebuild.

I am looking for a more professional way of doing them, hose clamps are going to leak at some point and I do not want to have to drop the TT and do this again.

On my car, maybe, on a customers car, not a chance.

Pretty much any hydraulic shop that caters to the heavy machinery trade can do it, Greg.

You can save a bit of cost by cutting off the fittings yourself, but make sure to mark which fitting goes where as well as the fitting clock position relative to the hose.

I had my trans cooler lines rebuild a few months ago for less than $100.

We went to several hydraulic shops yesterday and no one had the right dies to crimp them, even one of the biggest places in Atlanta said no.

I talked to a automotive hose place this morning and they said it wont be a problem, we shall see.

Are the trans cooler lines and sleeves small enough to use a cable crimper? It would seem like a large cable crimper would be darn close. Greg, for grins and if you have a chnace, what's the crimped diameter of the installed sleeves? I could check the dies I have for power cable.

As soon as they get back I will measure them.

I was impressed by way the folks sounded, he said he thought he had new firesleeve and the anti chafe hose that goes over the hose, he said it would look like factory.
