Getting the proper fittings for your car’s plumbing needs can be challenging, but with Jiffy-tite’s three fitting series, you can solve your motorsports plumbing challenges in no time. All it takes is following five easy steps to order and you’ll get a fitting that won’t let you down on the road or on the track. Plus, by double checking your order with Jiffy-tite’s “Pin System,” you’ll get exactly the right fitting components, guaranteed.
Jiffy-tite offers three different fitting series that cater to your vehicle’s flow needs. Choose from the 2000, 3000 or 5000 series fittings for a range of flow capabilities with all sockets and plugs in the same series being compatible with one another. The higher the series number, the more flow you will get from each component.
Choosing which series will best fit your needs is the first step in ordering your fittings. Each series then transfers as a two for 2000, three for 3000 or a five for 5000 as the first digit of your unique fitting’s pin number.
The second step in ordering your Jiffy-tite fittings is choosing between a plug and a socket. Male connectors are designated as plugs and female connectors are designated as sockets for ordering purposes. Fluid can flow bi-directionally with either the sockets or plugs. If you choose a socket component, the second digit in your unique fitting pin number will be a one, where as if you choose a plug component, the second digit in your unique fitting pin number will be a two.
After choosing your fitting series and between a socket or a plug, you must choose if you want your component valved or non-valved. All of Jiffy-tite’s standard connectors come valved with a high-flow, minimal restriction valve in place, although you can order any configuration of connectors in a non-valved style.
Next, you need to choose an adapter. Jiffy-tite offers a variety of adapters to fit your needs, from push to lock hose ends, o-ring boss seals and hose bar adapters, to reusable nut adapter designs, National Pipe Thread (NPT) male and female threaded designs, and male and female 37-degree AN designs. Each adapter choice corresponds with a number which makes up the third digit of your unique fitting pin number. The following two digits in the pin number represent the AN dash size or the NPT thread size of your component.
The fifth and final step to choosing the proper fitting for your application is selecting the proper seal type. Jiffy-tite’s standard connectors come with a fluorocarbon seal that is compatible with most fuel, oil, water and transmission applications, but Buna Nitrile seals are available for most methanol and alcohol applications, as are EPDM seals for nitro methane applications. Each seal type coincides with a single or double letter designation that makes up the end of your unique fitting pin.
With the many options you have with Jiffy-tite’s fittings, you can solve almost every plumbing challenge no matter what the application is. Be sure to check out all the fittings that Jiffy-tite offers on in their catalog and be well on your way to your optimal plumbing system.
