quality product! - Fittings

Used to replace the plastic radiator outlet tee for the 2004 Saab 9-3 Arc. Works great with 1/4" to 1/2" brass fitting with 1/4" threaded hole.

Pros
  • Dope ๐Ÿ”ฅ
Cons
  • Available in White only

No complaints! Used to drain coolant

Connects to a 1.25" ID lower radiator hose and installs Dormam 61105 to create a convenient coolant drain (which doesn't spill antifreeze all over my suspension unlike a stupidly placed faucet ). the 1/8" connector does not need to be deburred.

Pros
  • Weight
Cons
  • Not sure

Reliable outlet solution

Used on 2003 Land Rover Discovery to add an additional outlet to the upper radiator hose above the fan. When I use an in-line thermostat, air on the radiator side of the thermostat adapter gets trapped in the upper hose and as a result I have a very uneven coolant temperature depending on the gradient. This allowed me to bleed air from the cooler side of the thermostat and got rid of the odd temperatures.

Pros
  • One year trial
Cons
  • Not sure

Installation problem solved!

How do you install a 2.8 liter engine in a 1927 Chevrolet? Answer - Very carefully and with such details. With a custom radiator and a unique engine setup, going from engine to radiator is a real challenge. After taking my template to a parts store and examining all the pre-made hoses, I concluded that no hose could do it! This detail allowed me to connect the two hoses and make the transition clean. Now for the next challenge.

Pros
  • The best
Cons
  • There are cons

Ultimately it could have been more but settled on my Saab 9-3 Upper Hose Tee

Good product, would have enlarged the T area to be able to cut it into a larger fitting Place at least 1/2 barb connector ready. For a 2005 Saab 9-3 2.0 Turbo you will need at least three brass adapters to connect the turbo coolant hose to the tee. The first is 1/8" mpt - 3/8 fpt. , then work (don't think about the size of the next fitting) to get to the 1/2" nozzle fitting. A worthy permanent replacement for the plastic fitting comes with the new upper hose. Prone to failures due to externalโ€ฆ

Pros
  • Free for educational purposes
Cons
  • Almost never
