1979 Ford Racing Crate engine with a AODE-4r70W.

There are two cooler lines that come out the right side of the tranny and one of them is leaking pretty good. I've tightened the fitting but it still drips. What part and/or source do I need to fix this issue? I'd like to get the parts before I pull it all out. Is this a universal part? Is it a seal, o-ring...?

the line may have been tightened too much. My guy has white hair, missing a few teeth and hasa tq wrench for a writs. (joke)
But I think that may B the problem. If U have enuff metal line left to re-flair do so (what type? double bubble, single, etc) other wise itsa whole new line, nota big deal cept 4 tryin to feed some thru to where they R sposed ta lie.

Use a line wrench (almost circular in shape of 'grab-the-nut' area) to loosen and tighten. We use 'em on brake bleeders, etc - when bein 'tender' w/'our loved ones'.
aahahahaa

I ended up pulling the fitting off and doing a different attachment, it fixed most of the leak; although there's still a leak from the tranny pan.

"...tranny pan....'
warped? Place on known machinest flat (?piecea glass?) to ck? Tap flat? B sure to not over tq when putting back on so as to warp again? Use no gasket snot to 'glue'.

"...doing a different attachment..."
& what wuz that?
