WTB: ST185 Transmission cooler lines (CLOSED)

Hello all. I looked around to make the transmission cooler lines, but I'd like to see if anybody has them laying around.

Here's what we're looking at:

If anybody has these it would be greatly appreciated!

You can make your own if you can't find the part.

Note that AN fittings have very specific tq requirements and WILL LEAK if you don't follow the fitting/hose end manufacturer's instructions exactly.

Also an option is to get replacement hoses made. Some o'reilly's and other part stores will have a store in the district that can do it. Otherwise, call up a semi truck shop. They either can do it or will know where to go.

Yup I researched that route pretty heavily, but I'm mostly interested in getting the stock lines in at the moment if they're out there and available. This car is stock from the factory aside from my current restoration (Supra TT fuel pump being the ONLY non-standard part). If all else fails, I'll go the creation route. It's fairly simple by the looks of it.

Making lines isn't too bad, it just takes time. blow out everything with air all of the time and deburr whenever possible and make sure your cut is as straight as it can be.
You probably don't need braided lines for the transmission cooler, but if you do end up using them, I ended up with the cleanest cuts using a cutoff disc on an angle grinder and making sure to bottom the disc out on a piece of scrap metal. I had much less of a pleasant time using a band saw, using a hack saw, etc.
