I can see a c'bore. The o'ring isn't captured on the face + sides according to the SAE J1926 PORT dimensions but the c'bore provides a flat sealing face.

The O-ring will seal on the counterbore, which the drawing describes as a spotface. In this low pressure situation I didn't see the need in making the part significantly more expensive and machining the tight tolerance multi-angle bevel that is shown in the above drawing.

In other news, the first shipments will go out today!

If you followed us on FB you'd already know that.

You would release these right after I searched and searched and searched and finally just cut/welded my factory piece.

Looks like another quality part from Hawley! Still enjoying my reroute spacer!

Fits like a charm. Don't mind the dirt.

Fancy tapered official ORB geometry would indeed be expensive to reproduce. Standard square edge O-Ring counterbore would cost nothing more to do, using the tool that's already making your counterbore (spotface).

Our ORB machining for the same application (engine coolant) was initially done as you have made yours. Ultimately there were issues with it. There's many variables at play that affect how well that oring seals. You are relying on the end user to tighten the fitting to xx oring squish, and that the fitting doesn't rotate (not an issue with yours, is an issue if you use an AN fitting that also get's a hose screwed to the opposite end), and the variable squish of the oring changing with temps/age/coolant contamination. The only thing keeping the oring from expanding and ultimately splitting is it's press between two theoretically parallel surfaces. Coolant is slippery. Aluminum expands when warm. Engine vibrates a lot. Spraying coolant on the track/road is not ideal.

Creating a simple Oring c'bore solves all of this and costs nothing extra. Well maybe adding a 45 chamfer/oring lead to the c'bore with your spot face tool but your edge breaks look nice after the tumbling.

Thanks for the overwhelming interest in these parts. We're working to get another batch in as soon as our machine shop can pop them out. Shooting for 1-2 weeks, but I should have a more concrete eta by the end of the week.

I'm a bit worried this won't clear my A/C belt tensioner :(

I almost ordered one too but looking at the pics wasn't sure it would work with AC. Curious......

Please count me in for one, with radiator hose in your next batch. Provided it's been confirmed to clear an NB with AC

For me, it'd undoubtedly hit the frame of the tensioner. I could just flip it and run it like standard, but that defeats the purpose as my stocker is doing just fine otherwise.

I may post mine up for sale if anyone wants it sooner than the next batch.

so you're saying it won't clear your AC pully?

It won't clear the belt tensioner. The A/C compressor isn't hooked up in the picture, but you can see that the outlet would pass right up against the metal bracket of the tensioner and may even interfere directly with the pulley on the tensioner.

Psyber - Sorry about the fitment issue. I probably should have noted something about fitment with accessories. None of our cars still have A/C so I didn't give it a second thought.

If you'd rather return it, just let me know.

I am pretty stubborn and haven't given up A/C because DC area is a swamp.

I'll pm you later today

My car has no A/C or PWR Steering either. Maybe a version, change to have the -16 ORB coming out 90 degrees to the current design would do both.

With the 6an in the rear, is there a way to add a provision that would allow you to also hook up the TB/oil cooler hoses in addition to the heater hose that you can think of? I know the old Skou piece had this option. Maybe some kind of adapter T or something?
