Trans lines are dirt cheap but are a pain to bend. If you use a flair tool you can just redo the end and rehook.

If it is a flaired end you can probably cut the end off, re-flair and re-install. I had this exact same problem years ago on a 65 plymouth and I cut the end off square, put a brass ferule on the end of the tube in front of the nut, re-installed and it has worked great. If you do this do not over tighten the nut.

Cool

Sounds like you Twisted the line in two. The fitting is probably stuck to the old line. Get a short piece of line with the correct fitting size and cut one fitting off with a line cutting tool. Cut the old trans line, its probably twisted closed. Use the prooper size rubber hose over the tubes and hose clamps to hook the line back up, unless you want to replace the whole line.
