    Somehow I was thinking it's 5/16" too. I'll have to check mine out on friday.

    Tranny hose comes in both 3/8" and 5/16".

    Funny thing is that all these years I've never been able to find the vent on the front 10 bolt that's in my rig. Do all of them have it? My other two did, but I can't find the one on this one.
