    Have you used this hydraulic hose for the transmission cooler lines before?

    It's maximum temp rating is 212F. www.parker.com/parkerimages/euro_hpd/Flyer/4480_P13_UK.pdf

    Transmissions can exceed that with mild/moderate use.

    Really. I don't need you casting aspersions on my work. I am not a first timer on repairs. This is a very low pressure application. I have used it in the past. I use it on equipment and that is under pressure and gets hot. I am willing to give it a try. I didn't add any text to my post because I had a problem with the keyboard. I used it on engine oil cooler lines and other applications. I am sure it will not just fade away and burst if it reaches over 212*. I seen 3/8" fuel line in place of steel transmission cooler lines. They were holding up. Not something I would do. But it is something I have corrected in the past for customers. But I guess going forward I can use 300* Gates with hose clamps. I have my doubts that it will fail during plowing. But I will keep that in mind. I am not building the space shuttle here. 27057 3/8 X 3FT TOC HOSE

    The combination of high temperature and high pressure could reduce the hose life. I read the fine print on my selection of hose. I doubt this truck reaches that temperature. But I will inquire at the hydraulic shop. Have a HAPPY SAFE DAY.

    Imagine that the oil pan is rusted thru on Mr Rusty. I have over half the bolts out and am going to get eyeball deep in getting the oil dip stick tube off the manifold stud. I may need to locate another dipstick tube. I still have the rear studs to deal with that hold the engine oil cooler lines in place. Or Not. I have tied them up out of the way and have them secure away from abrasions. Some of the M6 oil pan bolts that have 10MM bolt heads have decayed down to 3/8". That is 9.525 MM. I wonder if Snap-On has a socket for that? Just joking I got them out with the 3/8" and a hammer. Safety glasses and getting very dirty are standard equipment on this job. The exhaust is rotted off at the manifolds. Surprisingly the cab floor is still solid and the mounts are still in place and secure. It has been 4 years and the parts I replaced are looking like they are OEM parts. Very Rusty. OK. Tonight I am off duty with family. I will report back and report my findings from the hydraulic shop on hose bursting and failure. Please remain positive in light of all the negative findings. I am positive and am the one doing all the work solo out laying on cardboard in the stones. My handy dandy LED dusk to dawn light I picked up works better than any trouble light I ever had and is tough and cool to the touch. Have a great Day Be Safe. Friday is the next day for progress. Till then watch the reruns. Enjoy.

    Power steering hose is typically rated up to 300F. www.gates.com/us/en/fluid-power/engine-hose/power-steering/powersteering-high-pressure-hose/p/3317-000000-000000/v/3317-00107

    Here's a bit of interesting reading on high temps and hydraulic hoses. www.hoseassemblytips.com/extreme-heat-affect-hydraulic-hose/

    OK. Class dismissed? I knew this and attended the refresher course. I am still OK with my choice of lines. I will report back if I have any failures. But I am sure they will work better and hold up better than rusted thin steel tubes with compression fittings. And I see these on many older vehicles I get to work on. I suggest to replace them but most times guys say they still work. I will fix it when its is broken. Periodic spikes in temperature at low pressure are not going to cause a catastrophic failure of the new lines I installed. But I will report back. I liked the ease of installation, fit and finish of the new lines. Can we move on from here? I am NOT recommending anyone else use them. I used them. Any failures or successes I am able to handle. I did make a call this morning to the hydraulic shop and they said if it was an issue they would replace the hoses with higher temperature rated hose. They were confident that it would hold up and said the hose has a safety tolerance built in. Unlike the engine and transmission that would meltdown under hi heat long before the cooler lines. Keeping the fluid and filter clean will help maintain a cooler running transmission has been my experience. Same as a newer clean radiator and maintained cooling system. These trucks tend to run very cool during plowing operations has been my experience. Have a Great Day. It has been a great debate topic. I could always check the towing capacity of the hoses I installed.

    Had I known they were available I may have gone this route. I had ask a few times on here for ideas. Always after the fact someone wants to answer with a BBD. Bigger, Better, Deal. I did make the length right. I made my hoses 90". Not sure how the guy ended up coiling 1 1/2'. 90" was the right length. And these were braided ones were $50. cheaper but that is with out delivery fees. I am still good to go. The braided ones look show car. The black hydraulic lines look like the belong there. Thank you for the last answers. I didn't know. Be Safe. I looked free shipping.
