Quote from: raueda1 on 09 March 2022, 04:42 PMThe conditions under the hood are bad enough as it is, that's why all these parts eventually turn hard and brittle. I'd therefore stay away from brass fittings to the extent possible. Brass contains copper which promotes thermooxidative degradation of most plastics and elastomers unless specially formulated (which this stuff most certainly is not). Cheers,
Quote from: Jan S on 09 March 2022, 05:48 PMThanks, raueda1 - I didn't think of that.One solution I'm following right now is to use a hose splitter made of nylon plastic. The temp range is up to 135 deg C (275 deg F).Is that sufficient, what do you think?
