Kilkenny Castings Brass Adaptors for Coolant Hoses &, Vacuum Lines

When working on those older, tired Australian vehicles and having to remove vacuum lines or heater hoses the fittings can be corroded if metal or brittle if plastic. This means just the tension of trying to remove an old hose can cause them to crack or break off. This is where ,KilKenny Castings ,can help.

Kilkenny Castings make a range of ,brass adaptors ,to fit popular Australian vehicle makes from:

  • Ford
  • Holden
  • Mitsubishi
  • Toyota


The adaptors can be for ,coolant hoses or vacuum lines ,and they even make repair pieces designed to save the original part from being scrapped. The parts mimic the originals and are a quality product built to last. They also build universal adaptors in the following shapes:

  • Elbow - Creates a 90 degree bend in a hose
  • Straight - Join 2 hoses together
  • T Piece - Split a hose 3 ways
  • Tree - Large trunk with multiple smaller branches coming off it
  • Misc - Odd shaped connectors


It is good practice to check any heater hose or vacuum line you remove and examine them for wear and tear. If they look old and tired or are cracking then replace them. Most clamps are reusable, though they are cheap and easy to replace if required. This is cheap insurance and may save a costly repair bill down the track if they fail while on a country drive.
