(R) Quick Connector Specification for Liquid Fuel and Vapor/Emissions Systems
|Publication Date:||1 December 1997|
1. Scope--This SAE Recommended Practice defines the minimum functional requirements for quick connectors used in supply, return, and vapor/emissions lines for flexible-tubing systems. This document applies to automotive and light truck gasoline and diesel fuel systems with operating pressure or vacuum up to 500 kPa, 5 bar, (72 psig) and operating temperatures up to 115 °C (239 °F). These tests apply to new connectors in assembly operations. Connectors must be pushed onto a mating tube end then pulled back to assure complete connection. For service operations, the mating tube should be lubricated with SAE 30 weight oil before re-connecting.
NOTE--New connectors using the same materials and design as previously tested connectors may use the original results as surrogate data for 6.1, 6.2, 6.3, and 6.4.
Vehicle OEM fuel system specifications may impose additional requirements beyond the scope of this general SAE document. In those cases, the OEM specification takes precedence over this document.
