Transmission fluid fitting damaged!!!!

So today I was changing out my radiator when disconnecting the lines everything went smooth until I got to the transmission lines the fitting was so rusted that it would not spin when I was trying to unscreward the line when it turned it turned the line also so long story short the metal line twisted up it was the only way to get the damn line of the radiator so now I have to fix the line any ideas from you guys would be so helpful or should I purchase new lines I couldn't even find em on line I jus say repair kits

Bummer. You may want to try to replace just the end but here is the line if you want to buy the whole thing. That is the most expensive line of them all.

You would need to get a new section of metal line the correct size and then bend it to replace the damaged section and then flair the end of the new section and the original section in an area that is straight and connect them together and then reconnect to the radiator. Not hard if you have the right tools for flaring and bending.

Woah! Over a C note on that tube! If you ain't fubered any portion of seal to the tank I'd say a perfect time to consider a cheap external cooler. Cheaper fix, and better for the fluid too? Justathought.
