where can I get TC thread adapter for filler?

Mon Oct 28, 2013 10:13 am

Good morning,

Does anyone know where I can purchase a special pipe adapter fitting so that I can plumb a return line to my TC hydraulic reservoir?

I see a picture of one on this forum - 4/8/2006 subject line "TC return line thread." This forum topic suggests contacting WKpoor. Do you know how I can contact WKpoor?

Thanks!

Here is a more recent discussion of that part. It is only needed on later Touch-Controls with the hex headed plug. The earlier ones were a pipe plug.

WKpoor is no longer on this site. However, Earl (who actually makes the parts) is. Just PM member name Earl.

Edit to add a pointer to my do-it-yourself version. The problem is it requires a standard hydraulic hardware part that isn't very common.

What I use seems to be the perfect solution, it's essentially a tube with a shut-off (and cap) that fits most larger containers. I think it's USA made and works very well for TC fill and several other uses. In fact, I used it yesterday to put 5 quarts of oil in my little Chevy.

Not sure if it makes a difference or not, but with an elbow on the end you will likely 'overfill' the TC. It is full when it runs out the plug hole.

Thanks for your help fellas!

I will PM Earl as soon as I find his contact information.

Your cub hydraulic explanation is terrific! I wish that I had ordered a "power beyond" valve so that I could have added a filter and extra reservoir.

Rick, Earl's Forum name is the same, so when you go to PM him all you need to type in is "Earl".
