Summit's Twist-Tite

Is anyone using Summit's Twist-Tite hose and AN fittings?

Specifically in a oil cooler and/or oil remote filter application.

I'm in a situation where the -10 AN braided stainless steel hose isn't flexible enough to do what I need.

There's just something about just slipping a hose onto a hose barb and then pumping pressurized steaming hot oil through it that gives me the willies...

I've looked at it......if I was to use it, I would have to back the hose up with a clamp or something.

NEVER EVER use a hose clamp on a push-lock hose coupling. You will force the barbs on the coupling in to the tube of the hose which will cut the tube.

I know what I'm talking about. Hose is what I do for a living.

Those push-lock couplings do not simply slide into the hose. You have to pound them against something to get them in. Most of your push on hoses are rated at a minimum of 200 PSI. You damn sure are not running that through your oil line.

I do agree on the tepature as the push on hose is only good 190-200 deg.

Here's the specs on the hose:

Hose Size -10 AN
Hose Inside Diameter (in) 0.625 in.
Hose Outside Diameter (in) 0.797 in.
Minimum Recommended Temperature -55 degrees F
Maximum Recommended Temperature 302 degrees F
Maximum Operating Pressure (psi) 250 psi
Notes This hose is NHRA approved.

Those specs will definitely meet the application!! But if a hose is rated at a certain PSI, does that mean that all the unions/junctions/fittings/etc. must also meet that PSI?

I just noticed it was NHRA approved. Shouldn't that mean it has to be very reliable? (I'm not that up on exactly what "NHRA approved" means)

Thanks for the input.

I've seen that type of hose used in both fuel and oil line applications, but I agree, the concept of it makes me nervous. As the specs show, it should be fine though.

would you be better off using an elbow type fitting instead of line? im not sure how tight of a bend your doing but you can get anything from like a 30* to 180*

I agree with Vic. I use the TransDapt oil lines for my remote filter and they are push on. I found the greater the bend near the end, the sooner the leak. I got 5 years out of the first set and when I relocated the filter to a stronger location on the bumper I had a more severe bend on one line and it leaked in 2 years. I put in a 90 degree fitting this time on that line with new hoses so I will so how long these last. I found an adapter that has 90 degree bends built in and I will use that next time I need to replace the lines.

The "bend radius problems" I'm having aren't at the fitting ends, it is all the twists and turns the line needs to make to get to the bumper area where I mounted the remote filter.

The LSC has so much crap in the way (lines, sensors/actuators, hoses, tubes, etc.) that there just isn't really any room for large radius bends. (Shoot there's even a "wire harness trough" in the way!!) The "problem area" is getting from the engine compartment past the radiator and radiator support. The logical path is already crammed full of other tubes, hoses, and wires.

Lincoln had the same problem and their solution was formed steel or molded plastic tubesÖ

For now Iím "crying uncle" and Iím going to just put the filter in its OEM location. I have to get this LSC back on the road. It has been down for months.

Iíll revisit the remote filter issue another day.

do the same. Cut the line and put a fitting in the middle to make the bend u need.

Yep, already ahead of you.

Ordered the stainless steel tubing and fittings this morning.
