BW-65 Setup help

As fluid expands and contract with temperature, DougM - ventilation is the essential bit. The devise shown may just prevent/reduce spillage of fluid, or prevent foreign stuff being sucked into the box.

Go higher than the transmission, and it points down so dirt can’t get in. It should also end above the transmission so it can’t siphon. Hose is fine.

Sweet. Thank you all.

You’re welcome, and don’t forget the o ring on the plastic fitting thingy!

I remembered (luckily).

Hello all. I wanted to double check my logic with more experienced brains before I commit to this. I salvaged what length I could of the transmission cooling lines from the junk BW-65 transmission that I have. I flared what’s left of the metal lines and plan on running a long length of rubber hose to complete the transmission cooling lines. Any reason why this wouldn’t work and would be a bad idea? I figured I’d double up on the hose clamps for good measure.

This will work.

The oil cooler is hooked up with rubber hoses at least on my car and others I know. The pressure is not that high. Double clamping not required.
But make sure that it can’t get tangled anywhere. It would be somewhat nicer to have a metal tube for the long runs and rubber for the transitions. Does it make a difference, most likely not at all.

Just make sure you use oil resistant hose and you’ll have no problem.
