    When I rebuilt the blazer, I decided to use rubber lines for my transmission instead of the hardlines that were there ( a lot easier to reroute). I am now starting to wonder if this might cause any problems. I'm not talking about a few sections of rubber line, I mean the entire thing from the output of the tranny to the cooler in the radiator, to the external cooler, and then back. TIA

    As long as the rubber lines are tranny lines and they are adequately protected it should be fine...

    Just make sure that they aren't routed anywhere that they will come in contact with metal. As you drive down the road rubber + metal= hole in the rubber (if theres vibration), and if its a tranny line it could cause a fire or blown tranny.
