The Kustom Coolant Distribution Manifold is a water manifold to route all your heater hoses through one centralized location. One of the benefits of the manifold is to clean up the engine compartment by only having one main supply and one main return line that connects to the coolant ports on the engine, rather than have multiple hoses running to the engine. Another benefit of the manifold is that it utilizes shutoff valves at the manifold for each circuit that are being ran so in the event of a coolant leak, the valve can simply shut off the leaking circuit and continue to run until the hose can be replaced.

There are two versions of the manifold; either a three or five port circuit is available. The base model is a 3 circuit manifold that allows you to run up to 3 individual coolant circuits. There is also an upgraded model that allows for up to 5 circuits to be plumbed in. Should your application not require the use of all available circuits, the unused ones can simply be plugged. Some common circuits that the Kustom Coolant Distribution Manifold is used for are the Cab and Sleeper Heaters, Transmission Cooler, Fuel Tank Heater as well as the Auxiliary Power Unit (APU). The Kustom Coolant Distribution Manifold is sold as a kit that includes the manifold, shutoff valves, hose barb fittings, elbows, and plugs. The Kustom Manifold is not chassis specific meaning it can be utilized on a Freightliner, Peterbilt, Volvo, Mack, Western Star, International or Kenworth trucks and can be used on medium or heavy duty applications.
