Oil Gauge pipe threads

Postby Pete.Silson » Sun Dec 15, 2019 11:09 am

Can anybody tell me what thread is on the oil gauge feed pipe nut (see picture). My rocker feed pipe came soldered shut and I want to rethread it so I can get the oil gauge in the panel working.

I am also thinking of replacing the solid pipe used in 5174-38 (above) with a flexible pipe. Can anybody suggest suitable connectors for this?

26tpi would make it 1/4 BSF - Any idea where I can buy the male fitting to go into it?

you can look on drags and look at their oil pipe fittings or a good car tuning shop that do gauges
