What degree are a/c fittings

Wet in Washington on Tue October 02, 2007 10:47 PM User is offline

Country of Origin: United States

Are A/C fittings 37° or 45°? My sorry old eyes can't tell the difference.

For some odd reason....the 37° sticks in my mind....that is if you are speaking of the actual flare of the fitting..male to female...yep....think that is right...but...what the heck...if this incorrect...bet there will be a thousand post tomorrow pointing out this horrible mistake....

Two different angles of the tubing flare and or the male flare at the metal to metal seating/sealing surface.

SAE is 45 degree and JIC is 37 degree. Most (but not all) automotive applications will be using the SAE flare.

Threads interchange in all sizes but -6 (3/8) and -12 (3/4) and some fitting manufacturers claim "dual seat" mating which means as long as the threads match, torque it. I prefer to see the proper seat match of the two mating pieces being used.

Iceman, we can definately do lunch at MACS, but do I have to wait that long to know what you are up to?

No, in fact part of that was the reason for the phone call...however, seems that this office has a one way door...once I get in...can not get out...and the darn phone...does it ever stop ringing....perhaps...later today.
