Default Tranny line leak..Two pics..and one question

I called the dealer, i got the trans pipe, that threads into the trans on one side, then comes out to the front of the trans, were the rubber hose, factory fitted to the pipe comes down to another metal line then i double clammed onto another pipe..
This is what the dealer sold me..the metal pipe, can I use this, then double clamp new tranny hose onto it..or does it have to crimped the same way it is in my picture.

Its the top line in that picture, at the very left side, u can see were its all wet around those two crimps
My concearn is...does the new line also need to be crimped at the top like the factory one is in the pic?
Second pic: The pipe Pontiac sold me...it will fit up there quite nicely then thread in
If i can use this...do i need to use loctite?

No, the line doesn't have to be clamped like the original one was. You right on with cutting the original hose at the clamp, then replace the tranny line, and double clamp it like you said. It will work out fine. I've done many like this before to get by.

That pipe the dealer sold you looks like an original piece. The factory clamp is a one time use permanent metal that is crimped to hold the hose the same way a screw clamp works.
You simply have to cut off the crimped clamp and remove the hose. I use a circular cutting tool driven by compressed air...but a hacksaw works.

instead of all the cutting and fun stuff, Paul, I will use the new line from the factory and double crimp at each line..as that rubber hose, is just inbetween two metal lines..use a hose to make the connection type thing?

Matt.. While that is a perfectly fine fix to the problem. I personally prefer to get the entire line if available. That way it is crimped hose on both ends and there is no question about the pressure going through it.

If the part isn't available then I'd be right there with you on the next best method of the double clamp.

I replaced both of mine on my old 92 with factory lines from the dealer and they both came with the hose crimped on there already. If I remember correctly the price wasn't too bad and they were both stock items.

I agree. I replaced both lines (one metal only and one metal/rubber combination). Both are available from the dealer, although the combination line costs more than the metal one (If I remember correctly, it was about $30 Canadian for the comb and about $10-$15 for the metal).

Particularly on a 92-94, you want to replace the whole thing, end to end. Remember the engine fire I had? And the known problem with it?
