Thread: Does anyone know where I can find a fitting like this?

    Default Does anyone know where I can find a fitting like this?

    This is a through bulkhead fuel elbow, This one is aluminum but brass is fine and 90 degrees is a must. I can't seem to find it at the usual places so hopefully it will ring a bell with someone. Thanks for your help...

    First i would double check your measurments... your 5/16 looks larger then your 3/8 by a considerable sum. how ever if using soft fuel line you can make this out of brass right at homeless depot or other hardware stores... 5/16 and 6/16(3/8) are so close in size a good clamp would solve any issues.

    though i would prefer stainless. over Aluminum were i you if used in salt... brass is still a good choice.

    The numbers are right, the camera just makes things look a little funky. Stainless would be optimal but am not sure if something like this is available.

    looks like there is a retaining clip on the 3/8 side between the two nuts. Looks an awful lot like the line to fitting clip on a Transmission cooler. Unless I am wrong, from the picture it almost looks like a 3 piece fitting. doubt you will find an exact match straight from the store. I would guess that you would need both the hardware store and auto parts store to find one. What year/ model boat is it from?
