Nothing Else To Do So Pictures

The offending tee fitting:

When it's finally all buttoned up, it needs to be level.  And it needs to be raised so you can get under it.

Real mechanics have lifts that do this naturally.

I am not a "real" mechanic.

The two reasons it needs to be in the air and level is to check the transmission fluid level (because some leaked out the cooler line) and because I plan on flushing out all the old fluid.  Rather than raise and lower it several times, I'm just going to leave it up.


  1. It's a real pain trying to work on anything like that, especially if it weighs about double what yours is (Silverado 2500hd Diesel).

    1. I suspect that you wouldn't need to put the Silverado in the air to get at the radiator drain.

  2. Ooooh, guess what was available on Ebay - https://www.ebay.com/itm/2-FOOD-GRADE-STAINLESS-STEEL-3-8-x-3-8-x-1-4-BARB-T-TEE-HOSE-FITTING-SPLICE/151948682704?hash=item2360d8e5d0:g:C9oAAOSwFqJWlg3B:sc:USPSFirstClass!49085!US!-1
