Title says it. I need them to connect to an accumulator.
5/16th are #8 fittings.
Am I confused? I thought #8 was 1/2".
Excusse me 5/16th is #6.
This may help, Hose Chart.
I was confused. Does 5/16 I. d. (#6) on the hose chart equal 5/16 o. d. on the aluminum line?
Yes, the barrier hose is sized by inside diameter while metal tubing is sized by outside diameter so a #6 tube fits inside a #6 hose.
GM Standard o-rings are made from 1/16" material and are sized center to center. So, a #6 o-ring (3/8") is actually 5/16" inside diameter.
GM captured o-rings are made from larger diameter material and the inside diameter is smaller than standard to fit the tubing indentation. The outside diameter is the same.
If you would list the make and model of the vehicle and specific location of the o-ring it would help cause most are identified only by application, not size.
OK, that helped my my confusion quite a bit. What I'm working on is a frankenstein application. I transplanted the engine and dash
from a 06 Grand Prix into a 88 fiero. Because of room constraints, I had to use an after market condenser that didn't have the attached
stock drier and therefore I'm trying to use an accumulator/drier from a 05 Pontiac GTO which has what looks like 5/16 male o-ring fittings -
at least what their i. d. measures.
Here's a pic:
That looks like a universal dryer. Should use a #6 O-ring.
