AW4 Fittings

Who has a part number for a male fitting that will screw directly into the AW4, with a male part I can slide a hose over to run an auxilary cooler on?

Re: AW4 Fittings

you are looking to do exactly what I was looking to do a few weeks ago.
i was unable to find a fitting because the stock fittings use a thread with an o-ring on it.
i am now planning on using the stock lines cut off just before the flex part starts, single flaring it a bit, and sliding my hose ends on there.
just a thought,
but if you find differently def keep me posted!

Re: AW4 Fittings

I've been working on something like this too. Here's mine:





I used parts from mcmaster.com. Here's the parts list:


4545K219 (Adapter $ 9.31/EA)
50695K218 (Sleeve $ .74/EA)
50695K226 (Nut $ .91/EA)


This setup requires a 37 deg flaring tool, but I used a 45 deg single flare tool since I couldn't find a cheap 37 deg tool. Hoping for no leaks.

Re: AW4 Fittings

just took a look at the website, for the adapter it says a temp rating up to 212deg. the trans def gets hotter than that, a problem you think?

Re: AW4 Fittings

I'm confident the temperature will be okay. I can change out the O-ring if it fails. The O-ring is the only non-metal part in the assembly.

Re: AW4 Fittings

are you running the cooler line off of the, 3/8 hard to a soft line to the cooler?
what size inlet/outlet does your cooler have?
im running into a problem that my hard line is 3/8 and my cooler is calling for a 11/16 hose.
just looking to see what you have.

Re: AW4 Fittings

Actually, I'm not running a cooler. I'm doing this to eliminate the quick disconnect fittings at the tranny which I don't have much confidence in. I'm using stock replacement 3/8 trans lines, and modifying the ends.

Re: AW4 Fittings

Here is another thread that may help you out. I'm running a -6 braided line to my tranny and this is what I used.

Re: AW4 Fittings

this has the proper thread to convet the trans fluid to AN style hose.
only problem is the factory fitting uses an o-ring and this does not?
anyone know if this will seal, or can an o-ring be used on this fitting?

thanks

Re: AW4 Fittings

Good find. I wouldn't use an o-ring. Some thread sealer would be just fine.

But just for reference, you can make this easily accept an o-ring with a washer.

Get a washer with the ID matched to OD of he o-ring. The o-ring needs to be slightly thicker than the washer too. Assemble the pieces and this effectively creates an o-ring groove. In fact, the mcmaster adapter I mentioned above is done this way.
