    Couple weeks ago I posted up on needing to know the size of the fitting that goes into the radiator from the transmission. 5/16 I am told.

    What I need is a 5/16 inverted flare fitting to -6AN male, since I will be using braided stainless. No luck at Summit. I have no place locally to turn to, so have to order these off the net.

    I need two fittings that go into the transmission, and two to go into the radiator, so I can connect -6 AN lines.

    If I am off base on what I need, let me know what I do need.

    I would really appreciate some help on locating these fittings.

    I think the fittings on the trans can be removed and it's pipe thread behind them.

    Summit or Jegs should have them...

    The ones out of your tranny are 1/4 NPT, once you pull out the adapter fittings that are in there from the factory (npt to inverted flare)..

    I'm not certain on the size of the ones in the rad, as I run directly to my cooler/filter. iirc they are 5/16 inverted flare.. It is a special purpose fitting from Earls.. If you call Summit or Jegs, I'm sure they can give you a part # and order it...

    They are available in steel from other distributors too..,.

    I need these fittings too

    I'm looking at going to a flex line set up too. I have a TH400. I took my factory fittings out of the tranny and they look like NPT. Are they 1/4" too? I can't find a 5/16" inverted flair for the radiator though from jegs. Maybe im just looking in the wrong places. What kind of pressure is in these lines and what temperatures? What kind of hose do I need to run?

    Standard Russell high performance steel brade will work. Here are a few from my S-10. -6 from trans to Be-Cool rad, Derail dual circuit cooler and back. Both trans and rad were 1/4" NPT.

    I mis-ordered the fittings from Summit, got them today and realized I did not read the description correctly.

    I believe this is what I need CLICK HERE. This is 5/16 inverted flare which will screw into the rad., the other end is 1/4 NPT female, which a -6AN X 1/4 NPT male will screw into.

    It does not look like it would work, but it will, you just cut the flared tube down, you are just using the flare for the seal into the radiator.

    I have looked for two weeks trying to find a simple one piece fitting but have never found one, this is the best I have come up with.

    I wonder if the person from this thread ever found the fitting you're looking for?

    Edit, the link wasn't working-I've fixed it.
