View Full Version : Need a brass fitting
07-10-2009, 01:04 PM
I broke a brass fitting that goes to the oil filter and pressure sensor.
The fitting is T shaped.
The right side fo the T has a 1/4" pipe fitting that screws into the engine block.
There is what I think is called a JIC fitting on top of the T that goes to the oil filter. Not sure of the thread.
The left side of the T has a 1/8 thread that goes to the pressure sensor.
Can someone tell me where to get this part?

Don't know if you can still get that exact part, but a good hardware or auto parts stoore should have all the fittings you need to make it up.

It seems that the middle part of the T has a reverse flare that no one has. The middle part connects to a flared tube and the flare has to have something to tighten against. Can find that part. I've been to Lowes, some fastener and pipe fitting place, a hyraulic shop, salvage yard, Airgas, and called someone in Dallas. Its supposed to be 103 degrees out there and San Antonio traffic is horrid at times.
Update: Foud the part at stumpfwelding supply. They also gave me some good advice to get up and running while I'm waiting on the part.

It seems that the middle part of the T has a reverse flare that no one has. . . .
I believe that's an inverted flare fitting, still available and commonly used on hydraulic brake tubing, fuel lines, and other tube applications.
NPT X inverted flare adapters used to be common on carburetor vacuum advance and governor fittings.
Some workable fitting combination should be readily available in about any brass cabinet... once you get passed the parts guy.
