    Fire proofing the tranny lines!

    Well I learned something new over this past winter.

    I came out to the garage one day and noticed my JEEP had been bleeding. I took a closer look to find that my tranny flex lines between the frame and tranny ports were all cracked and dried up (only 2 years old).

    So at that moment I realized that high pressure fuel injection rubber hose will not stand up to the ATF (transmission fluid).

    So I once again turned to the -6 AN fittings and stainless braided rubber hose. After using it for my fuel lines I figured it was the only way to do it right and fire proof it as best as I can.

    This stuff is not cheap but you use this stuff and then never need to look at it again.

    So this is what I picked up for the job.

    In the first pic you can see the -6 AN fittings for the tranny ports. The second pic is of all the necessary fittings, hose and as well as the hose ends.

    Part #s keep in mind I'm using a 4L60 for a tranny.

    2 x tranny fittings to -6 to adapt to the hose ends. No part# just found them on ebay.

    10' of -6 AN hose Part#632070

    2 x 45 degree -6 hose end. Part #610090 (To attch to the Rad inner cooler)

    2 x straight -6 hose end. Part #610020 (To attach to the tranny ports)

    2 x adapter -6 fliare x 1/4" NPT. Part# 660440 (These fit into the rad ports to the inner cooler)

    One more thing off the list! CHECK

    While I believe AN'ing tranny cooler lines is always a good idea, it doesn't really have anything to do with fire proofing or resistance? If exposed to high heat and/or open flames, the steel breaided line will also fail. You can add some fire sleeve to greatly increase the heat and flame resistance of it. I run some fire sleeve on AN lines that run close to certain high heat areas.

    Thanks CTD Nut for clearing things up. Not much is fire proof but its fire proof compared to fuel injection hose and hose clamps. The hose ends and AN fittings will not leak and it will take a lot of heat before anything bad happens.

    Looks good, I remember your fuel line thread from last year and this is a nice addition to that...I suspect that any and every line on your rig will slowly be replaced by steel braid with AN fittings...LOL...
