Hi Id like to find the brass fitting typically used for a fuel line or air pressure line. It is a 90 degree elbow and cast.

The small end is a fine pipe thread which is 3/8 of an inch in diameter. The top one needs to take a 1/4" copper pipe.

I could probably find something new to work but Id rather am old cast fitting.

Mc-Master or any hardware store. File, grind, or sand to the proper shape. As a matter of fact, I sometimes look in the bins at our local Ace hardware when Im there for something else and occasionally there are still some cast ones coming thru.

Just wanted to say thank you, I received some great responses and Tom has helped me out.

I will also be looking for more fittings for fuel lines and various brass bits and bobs, I will post soon with what I am looking for next.
