    Default Banjo on my knee

    Hi all, hope everyone had a very merry Christmas. I have a quick question on banjo fittings. I am in the process of designing (thinking about) putting in a TnT. In looking at the way in which the dealer plumbed my tractor for the fel and bh, it's a mess. Hoses running all over the place with 180' turns. The worst one is the return line to the sump which has a banjo fitting on it.

    Finally the question, are banjo fittings engineered to provide some sort of "flow control" or maintaining back pressure whereby if you changed it out to a regular open fitting you'd mess up the hydraulics?

    Thanks in advance for any words of wisdom.

    Happy New Year all!!!

    Sounds like our tractors were plumbed by the same guy cept mine is 30 years old. I just removed every line and fitting, re-engineered the layout, measured all hose lengths and 200 bucks later to DiscountHydraulicHose.com it looks like somebody actually cares [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Shouldn't be any problem replacing the banjo with a standard fitting if the threads are the same. Thinking you will need an O-ring boss fitting that fits the hole. These seal via an O-ring outside the threads kinda like the banjo fitting.

    Hope this helps
