260z Transmission Coolant Lines

Recommended Posts

I just bought some new headers for my 1974 260z, but they run into some transmission coolant lines. Does anyone know if I would be able to bypass these lines? Or what I could do to get around this problem? It's an automatic and I have removed the air conditioning.

Any information would be greatly appreciated. 

The two horizontal lines in the second picture are what I am talking about.

You need to keep the cooler lines. Why don't you fabricate some reshaped replacement lines?

That's what it looks like I'll have to do, I'm going to try to reshape the ones in there right now.

You can buy straight lines at most auto parts stores and bend a whole new line. Just need one with the right ends on it

I was able to reroute the current line and get really close, so I'm just going to buy a little extension and connect it to the radiator. 

Thanks for all the help.
