    JP What is the right name of the adaptors to AK head to new manifold?

    I decided on the Brute II to mount my AK head to. But when I showed the counter guy at the plmbg supply the adapters on the AK manifold he was clueless. Said he need a part number or the Industry name for the adapters to order them..

    pleas lend a hand.

    Call the TruTech Tools 888 number (1 for sales) and tell Eric that I said we will send you out the connectors for the cost of the shipping. Refer to this post if he has questions. We have straight and 90 connectors. I am guessing you need two straights.

    Thanks

    To match the AK to the Brute, you will need 2 - 90 fittings.


    One is a "street" type 90 and the other is a " street" type swivel 90.

    Thanks.

    The plumbg guy did not recognize the 1/8" adapters on the AK manifold. He said they looked like coax cable connectors. Go figure.

    Plumbers....





    Jim and TTT will take care of you.



    I just re-read my post in your quote and maybe I should be clearer.

    You will need 2 of each fitting to complete the adaptor.

    I'll put up a picture.

    I apologize for not posting the picture that I promised.

    No sooner than I posted that, the phone rang and I had to run on a call.


    Also, forgot to snap a picture last night while I was out.

    Are those fittings JIC hydraulic flares? If so you should be able to get them anywhere they make hydraulic hoses.

    I believe that they are just 1/8" npt threads.

    I'm not familiar with hydraulic fitting terminology.
