I notice that the rigid pipe connections on my volvo AD41's have no visible means of a threaded connection.....

i.e the pipe from the top of the thermo housing to the intercooler and the pipes into the aftercooler (cac) just seem to push in ?

Could anyone please enlighten me as to the method of sealing of these rigid connections? are they just push fit with an o ring type seal perhaps?

Thanks

Don't know the AD41, but Volvo certainly use push fit with O ring connectors on other engines. The rings are the cheapest Volvo spares at a few pence each!

If they are a push fit connection they will have a little plastic collar that slips around the pipe and then held in place by a retainer and an "O" ring. Before fitting clean metal up with some fine wire wool (so nice and shiny) then a good blob of silicone grease.

Yes, there is a lip for the ring in the female pipe section.

That particular pipe is "O" ring sealed and the pipe is held in place with a large "P" clip.
