1975 Coupe. I'm in the process of installing new pre-bent transmission cooler lines.When I removed the old lines but they were all bent out of shape so I couldn't reference them for the new lines. The only clip that I see in the AIM is on the forward part of the frame underneath the lower control arm that uses a single bolt. When I removed the original lines there were two clips but they weren't bolted into the bottom of the frame so I don't know if they were correct. I've looked up new clips at several of the vendors sites and they seem to show two clips also. Do these lines get a single large clip with one bolt or two separate clips? Also there is a double bracket that is attached to one of the oil pan bolts. Is the bracket on the oil pan also for the trans lines? I can't find it in the AIM but it was on the oil pan when I removed it. Thanks

Transmission cooler lines commonly attach to a clip on one of the oil pan bolts. AIM manuals are sometimes not clear on these things.

I tried to bend the clip to make it pull up towards the line and it snapped. I've been looking for those clips online without much luck. Thanks for the help.
