They are a site sponsor with a 20 acre mustang boneyard. You will probably have to call them though.

Just get a 1/4" black pipe nipple in the length needed or desired, a 1/4" tee, and a 1/4" plug.
The tee and plug are in case you want to add a mechanical pressure gauge to check your pressure at a later date.

Try to keep all of your posts on a subject in one thread please.
Spreading them out like this makes them hard to search and read.

No, they hook up with small tubing.
I always toss the plastic tube they give you and use 1/16" copper tube instead.
The plastic tube tends to break or melt easily.

i was refering to the tubing.

galvanized should work fine though. as long as its not a conduit fitting. a conduit fitting has non tapered threads and may leak. but if you got it by the black pipe im sure its good.

oh yeah. the galvanized wont rust either which makes it a good choice.

Re: Need this fitting??

My choices hearken back to my plumbing days.
Galvanized Pipe is for water.
Black Pipe is for air/gas/oil/steam.
Plastic, copper (several different types), brass, stainless steel, cast iron and.......darn I've forgotten the other one(s) all had their specific uses and were at times interchangeable.


Let's see if I can remember why on the galvanized........
They didn't use galvanized on much other than water because of reactions it might have with acids that formed in some the other substances (i.e. engine oil) and costs, as it is more expensive. Also poorly applied galvanizing could break free and cause problems too.



Galvanized will be ok in that application though, as oil is not "flowing" through it.
