Auto heater cores, depending on model, are rated for 6-20+ PSI. Anything in from the 70s or so should be rated for up to 10, but would probably be safest at around 7. I don't think you should build up that much pressure though.


I don't recall ever seeing a 1" ID to 1/4" ID fitting before. Definatly not in auto, but maybe in a plumbing supply?? Not sure, that's a big jump. However, you can get 1" to 3/4" and then 3/4" to 5/8" and then 5/8" to 1/2", ect, ect, LOL...be about 5 fittings to drop to 1/4"

Yea. I didn't expect to see one with that big o' jump. I went to Lowe's today, then realized I don't know the exact measurements of the fittings...haha. I did manage to find fittings to bring me from 1" to 1/2", then 1/2" to 1/4"...ha, so 2 fittings..hahaha.

I can fix you up with a 1/4" heatercore if you want, but I would suggest going to 1/2.
