1965 Mustang Convertible
The 289 is out of my '65 convertible and the short block is at the machine shop. I am replacing the C4 transmission cooler lines. I had the trans rebuilt a couple of years ago and the mechanic cut the lines when he pulled the trans. He spliced the lines back together when the trans was replaced and it has leaked since then so I bought new lines. The trans is still in the car. Should I install the lines before or after I put the engine back in? Does it even matter? I just have jackstands to put the car on, I don't have a lift. Before I pulled the engine I removed the lines from the splice forward. and it was an easy job. But the long lines may be a different story with the engine in place.
