    Glen,

    My bad, I should have better described it. I'm looking for a symmetric Y so flow (would be flowing up in this context) will split evenly to the two branches and discharge at the same angle from the main leg.

    Kirby if you find one let me know. I looked for the same a few years back and all I found was plastic. After a number of heat cycles I discovered my heater output was greater than I envisioned, and the reason they use aluminum. Never bothered to fabricate one, but that was the next direction.

    I used the type I posted in my J4 heat 10 years ago so that heat came out under panel in front of both sticks. The drag inside the scat tubing must balance it out because both deliver the same amount of heat

    I have the one Glenn posted and a scat house hooked up the rear torque tube. The heater no longer melts one foot with the y attached

    Always ready to learn even if the new and improved is coming from Oklahoma, does it even snow there? I thought you guys kept water in your bird baths year-round?

    Atlee modifies their cub stuff for my Tern and doesn't make me buy the extra parts I don't need.

    First attach this to cabin side of heat box



    The right side of this Y has a belled end that will slip offer first fitting, screw it on or a hose clamp works



    Or this one will also slip over first fitting or other 2 outlets of Y



    First 2 fitting were from Wag, last one from ACS

    When I first mounted the heat up under panel I did a single outlet in front of the stick, it was so hot ( even at zero) I had to wear a glove on my stick hand, changed it to 2 outlets

    putting one of these down at the cab heat exit at the bottom of the V would even help to get the air to go up and around. just need to point it up at maybe a 45 from the floorboards.

    I run a scat hose off of a diffuser at the heat box and I want to use a Y as a splitter on the downstream end to send warmth back seat towards each side and away from the master cylinders and other stuff.

    I got stuck in the back seat on the way to your flyin and had the SCAT hose run under the seat and hook on the seat pocket. It was to hot to hold and just kept part of my warm until I looked it back under the seat pointing forward just below the seat base. It evened out the heat throughout the entire cockpit.

    This evens out the heat in the front pretty good and the long scat can be put in your jacket when you donít have a back seater.
