Re: Transmission hard lines leak

As you said, you clamped each one. Twice. That works as well.

Lots of barbs claim to not need any other retention mechanism (Pushlok). That isn't always true- tranny fluid in particular likes to find a way past the barbs.

Re: Transmission hard lines leak

Thanks for the tips, Burntkat. I think you're right in that they have the O-ring seal but I'll definitely use thread sealant too. No strong arm torqueing either.

I'm considering attaching the barb fitting to the original hard line with a short section of hose (with a bubble flare on the hard line). Then finishing off with an in-line filter somewhere near the radiator cooler outlet.

Re: Transmission hard lines leak

Sounds like a damn fine plan.

My barb fittings came today, and they are Parker 68HB-6-M114 (port adapters). They are M14x1.5 threads with a 3/8" beaded hose barb connection. The O-ring seal is included.

I'm sure those stock quick-disconnects were designed for ease of assembly at the factory, and not for reliability. I think the hose with clamps modification will be much more durable.

Re: Transmission hard lines leak

Completely agree. Thanks for sharing the specs, as I'm going to be doing the same to my XJs

Re: Transmission hard lines leak

Here is an article I remembered from JP Magazine where they upgraded to transmission cooling system in a 1998 XJ.

http://www.fourwheeler.com/how-to/tr...ps-and-tricks/

Go through the pictures at the end of the article and it gives the part number for the special 14x1.5 fitting for the AW4.
