if you are using the trucool then these are the adapters and lines you need 2 of each
BTW the an lines referenced below hold like 1200 psi far and beyond external trans line pressure
first pic is amazon, 2nd pic ebay

My Tahoe diddnt have the external cooler from the factory like my truck did.

Therefore I had to T the inlet going into the radiator and bypass through the cooler and back into the radiator.

I’ll try to get pics after lunch to explain
It is however not a professional job by no means and I would like to swap to AN lines throughout for a tighter/ cleaner look but for the time being this is going good

If I diddnt have bad luck I wouldn’t have any luck at all!


Not a big deal to pull the cover off to remove the debris. Just throw that PITFA POS extension neck in the trash. The oil cap will fit nice and snug directly to the VC. You'll just need to use a funnel to fill now that's all.

You can look in there with a flashlight and use one of those gripper tools to get anything out of there. Broken piece shouldn't have gone far unless the engine was running.
