    found out the fitting is a6a968c and ordered. i am looking for someone who has changed the fitting on drivers side to answer if i need to use a wrench or socket to remove. also how much coolant will come out, do i put anything on the threads of the fitting and anything on the pipe that seats against oring.

    if its the return {upper} a socket will do. its 3/4". you will lose most of your coolant. drain beforehand. there are special tools to get the clip loose on the fitting, which you probably dont have. a small 90 degree pick works just fine.
    the threaded part is oring boss, no need for any sealant. but its never a good idea to install threads/ orings dry. just wet the threads/ oring with whatever.

    Looked for that part number and I get nothing back. Looks like I have this issue on the pass side of my F150, so I am looking for the same fitting. Anyone have some pics of how they swapped the o-ring/fitting, what it looks like apart?

    Edit, I found the part, here is the full part number, BL3Z-6A968-C

    Just to clarify, is it possible to get the bulkhead connector off the back of the head/motor without pulling the engine forward? I am going to be fixing an exhaust leak soon and would like to replace both these lines, but just how far I can go depends upon the access to this connector. Also no sealant or tape on the threads?

    Is there some secret to replacing these so they don't leak again? What about this item? https://www.full-race.com/store/fitt...rain-fittings/

    Anyone use this fitting? It's the male part to the coupler correct? Are these more reliable than the hard tubing?

    Your link is for a turbo oil drain fitting on pan. Nothing to do with water.
    If you want to throw away the junk jiffy tite stuff, the thread size is 9/16-18. Just typical #6 AN size. You could make it a simple connection.

    the fitting would replace the stock jiffy tite one. The hose end is just a 3/8 pushlock. The block side is more or less the same. But unsure if a bigger thread or not. But same deal. You get the idea.

    question on replacement. do i need to drain the coolant system to do this or can i replace with a little mess. also i read this is a push fitting so does mean i dont need to remove the new clip on the fitting but just push the line back in.
