    Hi Everyone,
    Have a simple question to ask. On my 1970 Challenger, I recently removed both automatic 727 transmission cooler lines from the transmission to the radiator. The previous owner had a homemade set installed that needed to be changed. I bought a nice pre-bent set from In-line Tube. My question is, do the lines go above the steering draglink towards the engine or under the steering draglink towards the ground?

    Thanks for your help,

    Tirekickertoo

    The lines go above the link, there is a clamp that goes on the lower starter mounting stud to hold both of them secure as they go along the side of the oil pan

    Thanks 704406 for the information. I'm missing the mounting clamp you mentioned. Any idea on a parts vendor who sells them?

    Thank you,

    Hi douglas17,
    Thank you for the reply and information regarding the transmission cooling lines mounting clamp. As you are aware I asked the question to the group a while back with not much response. I ended up finding this part online at MEGA Parts (www.megaparts.com). I appreciate the information you posted about a part number and vendor. I'm sure this will help someone out asking the same question in the future.

    Regards,
