Transmission Cooler & Barb fittings

I've just got one question...Can I use plastic barb connectors to splice into the factory tranny lines to install the tranny cooler I got?

I've searched this and all that comes up is brass fittings.

The cooler I got was a Derale 7000 Series model# 13204.

Thanks,
Steve

you can I have one plastic and one brass. I would prefer to have both brass but couldn't get the plastic one out after I put it in The brass allows you to really tighten the clamps down more without worrying about cracking the plastic. You should be able to find the brass in a plumbing supply store.

Like the others brass is better for getting the clamps tight. I got mine at Tractor Supply.
I don't know what kind of stores to recomend for Candada.
