    On another project, I'm getting a low pressure elec. fuel pump that has a 3/8" NPT inlet and outlet.

    I still want to use my plain 5/16th fuel hose, so where can I get a 3/8" NPT male to 5/16" barb fitting adaptor?

    I am not interested in plumbing the whoel system with AN fitting. Because this is low pressure, as in no more than 5 psi, I simply want to run plain fuel hose and barb fitting and convert the NPT.

    I have checked my JEGS catalog and I just don't see anything.

    Can anyone help out?

    Lowes/ Home Depot .. Any type of self respecting hardware store.
    If you go to the BIG stores try to look in the plumbing aisles or maybe tools if they carry air tools. You might have to do it with 2 fittings but should be able to do it for cheap.

    Good luck and try not to get lost in the wharehouse stores!!

    Hardware store, plumbing section. Around here, ACE has the best selection of brass fittings and adapters.
