    ive seen a people using -an fittings and ss hoses for their radiator hoses, and i was curious to try and find out a few things, first, do -an fittings screw right on to the radiator and block, or would i have to get custom on them... also does anyone know what size hose works for coolant? -14 -16 ?????


    im researching this cause im planning on a CA swap in my 240 and cant find
    A: a big ass radiator for CA's
    B: replacement hoses for stock CA radiator


    so i want to get an SR KOYO radiator, and just do SS lines with -an fittings.



    if anyone knows how this is done, or has a good website to point me towards it would be greatly appreciated.

    i see this being a big pain in the ass....
    mainly because they are for hose connectors to a thread, not smooth metal flanges.


    you will have to thread the rad and the water port on the motor to accept the fitting
