First a little housekeeping. In my post of two days ago I talked about my 'one year restoration', actually it has been TWO years. Time really flies when you are having fun!
Now, please excuse my ignorance regarding brass fittings. I already have a collection of brass fittings that I ordered wrong and do not wish to add to my 'collection'. In this regard I have a few questions:
Male brass flare fittings appear to have a nipple on the end which would prevent the original CC female compression fitting from catching a thread (see attachment). No?
What is the size of the male flare fitting that mates to the original CC female compression fitting? 1/4 inch?
Do I need to machine the end of the male flare fitting in order to mate it with the original CC fitting?
Where can I purchase a 90 degree elbow that connects to the original CC fitting on one end and has a 1/8" NPT on the other end? This is what I need to hook-up the oil pressure gage to the engine.
Thank you Jim and John for your responses.
