Needing heater hose tee for coolant filter!

Guys I haved looke everywhere for a brass 3/4" x 3/8" x 3/4" tee. I bought a coolant filter head from a guy on here and was gonna make my own coolant filter setup! I have lots of fittings hoses and other junk laying around the shop and figured it would be a piece of cake! But I cannot find that Tee in brass. I have found it in plastic and nylon! I know the rating on the nylon is like 150 degrees so it is out. But I dont know the rating on the plastic. It is sold as a heater hose tee at Autozone but I dont know the temp ratings. My local Lowes doesnt have anything.

Do NOT use plastic. Read this thread and look at the pics throughout and you'll be glad you didn't.

Good luck with your hunt and here's a bump for ya!

Look at PEX fitting at the hardware store. I think I used a 1x1x1/2 for the supply on my filter setup.

Nothing wrong w/ plastic tees IMO (properly rated plastic), but you can get brass tees off of the internet:

Yeah, I meant to type plastic and put PEX, corrected myself, but too slowly! Brass is certainly safer, but I think PMM is taking advantage of the emotion from some of Dieselsites tees failing.

Yeah I looked at the pex fittings, but I didnt know if the barb on them was good enough to hold the hose on! I may just go and get one of those and give it a try! I guess the system will only have 16psi so it wont have alot of pressure! The heat was my only concern!

I've been running the PEX fitting for the supply for 20k with no problems. The one I used was a real tight fit also.

Hasn't Dieselsite always used barbed brass fittings?
