I have a 1967 Ford Falcon Futura - Inline six 200 w/ a C4 Cruise-o-Matic 3spd. Trans.


Does anyone know where I can get cooling lines? (i.e. Websites or any places in or round the Seattle area)

Advance Auto carries steel brake line that you can bend yourself to plumb into the cooler. They also have rubber line that's rated for the high temp/pressure and wont break down from the fluid running through it. Normal fuel line will. Its usually a few bucks a foot.

5/16" steel fuel line is sold at most auto parts stores in various lengths and you can get unions to join two to make the right length.

5/16 steel brake line.
A 5' piece will do one line.
The nuts will fit both transmission and cooler.
Stuart,
Have you ever seen a car that used a 5/16" brake line?
I haven't but I have seen quite a few that run 5/16" fuel lines.
It is the same line just different sizes.

OK, let me rephrase the question:
Have you seen a car come from the factory with brake lines that were 5/16"?
I have seen a lot of 5/16" steel fuel lines using 5/16" inverted flares but in all my years I don't remember any cars that came with 5/16" brake lines.

I can see that they call them brake lines but they are simply medium pressure hydraulic lines with inverted flare fittings whether they are used on brake, fuel or hydraulic applications.

I'm pretty sure when I replumbed the brake lines on my Falcon I used all 5/16" stainless tubing. What is so weird about that?

I think 5/16" fuel lines would be too small. All my fuel line is 3/8".
