    Flush Kit

    Im making my own flush kit and wondering what temp the coolant rail gets to. In the kits you can buy they have a brass hose barb that goes into the rail, then plastic tubing with disconnects. Im planning on threading a polyproplene (banjo) onto the rail. All thoughts welcome. This is a great forum!! Keep them coming.

    It doesn't get very warm. I would think a plastic fitting would be ok.

    the only thing is that the plastic pvc fittings get brittle after awhile from the heat and could snap off . if you go with plastic go with the grey fittings there a heavier grade plastic and can take more heat

    You can always go to a hardware store and get a brass elbow fitting, connect a ball valve and hose connector. This is what I did for under 20 bucks, just my idea. I wouldn't be comfortable running plastic you never know.

    Very nice setup. It's amazing the ideas you create with a few minutes of browsing through the plumbing aisle.
