it is standard to double clamp trans lines. Because of the pressure and hazard they pose. Do you happen to have extras you can add?

Yeah, I let it run for about a 1/2 hour with no leaks, and drove around, but for safety, I am gonna double clamp them.

Do you think it'* necessary to double clamp them? I just noticed the factory hoses by the battery are single clamped, and that was factory. Plus I DID use the better fuel injection clamps that hold down on the whole diameter of the hose.

One clamp can work..however every mechanic/dealer/trans shop will almost always use the double clamp. They do it from expereience. When I had a patch on a line..it was a double clamp on both sides.
