Fuel Line Connectors
« on: October 25, 2018, 08:30:53 AM »


Hi

I've just had the fuel pump refurbished and the only parts missing before I refit are the illusive 45 degree fuel line connectors, has anyone got a source they can direct me to?

Thanks

I got mine at the local auto parts store. They’re a standard 45-degree flare fitting, male 1/8-27 NPTF x 5/16” inverted flare.
If you strike out, maybe have to go online to McMaster-Carr, Grainger's or like someplace like that.

Thank you, I'm in the UK and they appear to be a fitting not widely used over here and not held by the main stockists.

Crawford,

This is on my current pump. That’s what you’re looking for, right? I need to pick up some new ones as well. I’ll you know what I come up with.

Crawford,

I got two new ones from the parts store. Threads for the male are 3/8-27 and female 1/2-20. If this is correct PM your address and I’ll send over. If Different threads, let me know and I’ll take another look since they had a good selection.
