Hello,

I am replacing a hose for my 3 PT hitch. (BTW I got rid of mid lift cylinder and hoses some time ago). My question is: can I replace the original tee fitting that had the two jic 5 male ends for the original hoses to a fitting with only one 1/4" NPT end to connect straight to the new 3 pt hose I purchased? I am also assuming the tee fitting is Jic 5 on all three ports as I have not removed it.

Thanks in advance for the advice!

Bennie

You are correct, the tee is #5jic all around. If you're hose is 1/4" npt you will need an adapter to get you from npt to #5 jic male.
Or you could replace the fitting in the TCV. Pretty sure it is 1/2" orb.

The easiest would be to have a #5 female JIC fitting on your hose and to connect to the fitting you have at the TCV.

Ummm, If you are talking about the fitting that is screwed into the TCV itself, that is an #5 SAE/ORB Male on the valve side, NOT JIC. If you're swapping that to NPT, the fitting you are looking for is: 6405-05-04

(Which I would put some hydraulic specific locking sealant like Loctite 545 on it to keep the hose from unscrewing the fitting over time) Most SAE fittings what a nut you tighten back down against the casting which help lock it in place.

Personally I swapped the ports in my TCV, on a 646 LOADER to Jic #6 with 6400-06-05

Pretty much 100% of the fittings going into valves, pumps, motors, etc on the CCI tractors are SAE/ORB male fittings.. #10 are used on most of the TCV - Drive Motor - Pump connections. The drain on a TCV is a #12 if I recall.

You are correct, the tee is #5jic all around. If you're hose is 1/4" npt you will need an adapter or you could replace the fitting in the TCV. Pretty sure it is 1/4" orb. Easiest would be to have #5 female JIC fitting on your hose.
