Upgrade, fittings and stainless braid hose.

I suppose a feller could hack the tube and use a compression style fitting in a jam. I suspect you're in the "rust belt"? Probably keep happening until the whole line was 100's of $ worth of compression fittings.

When my 91.5, Chrysler wanted about $300.00 just for the line with the temp sensor bung. Granted that waas for the A518. Ended up going and having some hyd. hose made to just replace both lines, cost me about $40

All said above will work-but what's easy?

Most hydraulic shops will have splice sleeves which you can braze in place. cut it in 2 @ pin hole, clean line of oil, install with splce and braze in place.

Absolutely you can have a new line or made or repaired. I'd take if off and have someone whom fabricated hoses/bent tubes just fix, replicate, splice a piece. Sensor will have to go away.

Rock has the A618 piece for $20 with the hose and hated check valve.

When I do my Ramcharger cummins conversion I will need tranny cooler lines since I'm going auto. I just plan on running hyd hose like saggonwaggon did.
