Hi there!
I replacing an intercooler in a Perkins 6 cylinder but now the old lines coming from the transmission to the intercooler are a little bit short..

that will take research, but i bet ye can find it in an online site or in a tractor or generator supply place...just paint it with rustoleum when ye get it and inspect parts regularly.

Look up hose companies... like Aeroquip. They will custom make you lines purpose built for whatever length, fittings and type of oil.

aeroquip rocks. until ye can afford aeroquip, pressure lines will work.
i covet and crave aeroquip, but finances have prevented that occurrance.

Yeah, Flow Motion, Aeroquip,etc. Just about every town has a hose shop or a mobile hose guy. The corner autoparts store does not stock hyd. lines for your marine transmission.

Re: Transmission oil line for perkins

Ask your car mechanic. He'll know a local place with a good reputation. That's what I did to replace one hose.

Otherwise, ask Transatlantic Diesel. They are awesome.

Regards,
Brad

Hi Brad!
Mechanic on this area tend not share right information.. they work under "black box" principles.. don't touch, it's gonna cost you 3 times more if you messed and call me later...
I forget completely about aeroquip.. eaton everflex it's an excellent option
Thanks you people!! Gonna get the right type and fitting and put order...
