need some help

well i was wrenching on my snow plow bracket and i guess i hit one of the rusty tranny fluid lines heading up to the radiator. we just replaced these lines on our 04 that did the same thing and in order to replace the lines we had to replace them from the radiator all the way back including the tranny toilet paper roll filter assembly. is there any way to replace just the lines and not the housing without destroying it. we couldnt get them to come apart last time so we bought it all. has anyone else had this problem? or is it just us guys that play in the snow. well if anyone has any info to help me out i'd appreciate it. oh, and how do i find out what tranny i have again to buy parts??

here are pics of the two lines i need to replace

Yes, OTC sells the small tool for removing the lines from the cooler and filter assembly. They are around 18 bucks.

Ford Transmission Cooler Line Disconnect Set | OTC Tool Manufacturer for Cars and Trucks

they come with 3/8" and 1/2", you will use the 1/2".

The line tools are universal-as for trans parts-if you have a 7.3 get parts for a 4r100. If you have a 6.0, you need 5r110 parts. Good luck.

pretty sure when i did them on my 90 it was just the nuts at either end, and a rubber hose inbetween that was flared, but that was a E40D,

coming from another guy that plays in the snow, replace them ALL now, its really nice to spend the extra $10 for lines and do it in ~70 degree weather with the sun out then to come january with a blizzard coming and 5 degrees out,

you really shouldnt need any "parts" other then 3/8??" tranny lines, some clamps, and possibly a flairing kit (not 100% underneith the torqueshift)

You have 1/2" lines, but being as all the lines are quick connect, making your own isn't really an option without using compression fittings (ewww) I'd just replace both lines from the secondary (frame mounted) trans filter forward. Look on ebay, or see if anyone is parting a truck out. Other than that, call up ford.

Yes. All 6.0 engines came with the 5r110w if they were automatic.
