Rotax 912 cabin heater.

Postby chuckb01 » Wed Dec 13, 2017 9:40 am

My airplane will be a pusher configuration and i want to install a heater core with blower in the cabin. I already have a nice small one. I need to tap into the 912 coolant hoses coming to and from the radiator. I don't remember the O.D. right off hand but I need 2 "T" fittings to put in these 2 hoses and the output wound be a 1/2" I think. So, does anyone know where I can pick up 2 of these "T" adapters to put in the existing radiator hoses. Aluminum or steel, but prefer steel. hope I don't have to have them made. Thanks much. :)
