Unfortunately not. I bought one and tried. The threads on the TruMax are not NPT. I don't know what they are called, it's a type commonly used in hydraulics I believe.

On my Trucool Max I installed in 2011, just for date reference in case there has been a change, the cooler is 3/8 inverted flair. I went to a well stocked hydraulic shop that catered to race cars and the guy was able to accomplish what I needed in two fittings. 3/8 Inverted flair to AN adapter and AN to 1/2" barbed hose. A few more convenience fittings of a 90 in AN and a taped coupling to insert my thermostat that turns on the Trans cooler fan. I was concerned about the restriction of the stacked fittings since I was getting a new transmission installed at the same time by John Wood. John said 3/8 fittings would be fine but to maintain the 1/2" hoses. So that's what it's been for the last 7 years.

This is the correct adapter that doesn’t exist. I used JB weld and glued the cutoff 1/2 Barb off another fitting over the 3/8 Barb included in the trucool box. Hopefully it won’t leak.

My solution was similar except brazed instead of JB weld. One failed so batting 2 for 3.

I was thinking of soldering one this morning and compare. I let the JB cure overnight so maybe I'll keep a spare. Surprised yours failed. Leak or total failure of braze?

It was a less than perfect braze. The filler didn't completely fill all the gaps. Just enough to work for a while. And of course I had a tru-cool fail as well at the support so there's that. Could just be me.

All done! 164 degrees on my test drive with hills. No leaks on JB welded fitting.
