this is probably going to seem stupid..
fuel inlet rochester carb. I only learned to get "3/8ths brake line"
I want to put a fuel regulator right up close to the carb..with one fitting.
I can only guess that the carb takes a 1/8th npt (.405 inch? ), but I buy 3/8ths brake line to fit.. and the regulator looks to be the same. The measurement on outside of the thread is 12mm. this is where I am confused. on npt they got outside pipe diameter at 10.29mm. is it the same?
I found a male to male 6AN.
this is similar to what I seek..but it is not a correct looking seat.
what do I look for as a male to male with an end that looks like this:
is it "1/8th npt"? I never see the connection written as such..but seems by photo it may fit. (read edit below)
thanks for help.
ok a measurement resembling something..
the fitting that they called a 3/8ths brake line is 5/16ths, outside diameter of the piping, not the fitting, is a shy of 8mm...that makes it a 1/16th npt by definition. (the second photo from above- that fits the carb inlet)
are the 1/8th npt and 1/16th npt threaded parts the same size or no?
if not..1/16th npt male to male is non existent and I would be out of luck.
someone must have hooked up to the rochester with some accurate numbers...anybody?
I always just buy brake line... never payed attention to actual numbering.
