Use high pressure fuel hose and double clamp each end.
The fluid has enough pressure it can blow off the hose.....been there.

Success (I think) After a week, I have no signs of coolant leaks, or trans fluid leaks(from the lines), and as a bonus I replaced the passenger side valve cover gasket, and that seems to be leak free as well. 

Now, if I can just clean up where I overfilled the PS pump, one of these days I might figure out where the transmission leaks.

Do the cable shifted trans have that?
 
The last time I looked at it I was leaning towards the park cable, but I'm really not sure.  It's one of those small leaks, that only happen when it's running, and gravity/wind end up spreading it pretty evenly everywhere.

There's no park cable on that.  That's probably the speedo cable you see.  It's a lever, mid-main body on the left side of the trans.
 
You could have a cracked cooling line fitting too

Steve,
 
This is the Chrysler I'm talking about.  '65 definitely had cables.
