Fuel Line Fir Tree Connector 106982

Postby WelshWrangler » Tue Dec 22, 2020 2:47 pm

Hi, does anyone have a spare fir tree connector (part no 2 on the drawing) that connects the flexible fuel feed hose to the metal fuel line. Previous owner has removed certain items including this and lost it!

Obviously Ed has them in stock.

And Arran.

Otherwise, without any scale in the picture to tell properly of course, there's a good chance it's probably a BSP MALE-MALE hose tail connector. Maybe 1/8" BSP? or 1/4" BSP?

Something like this.

I don't know the hose diameter off the top of my head, but maybe 8mm (which means probably the link above is perfect, or maybe 10mm (something tells me it's 10mm. I replaced mine years ago, but it's too cold/wet out to go and tear down that part of the car to look , plus xmas prep etc etc))

Sorry i can't be of more help.

Maybe someone will chime in with the exact measurement type.

For the cost of it, and unless someone chimes up with the exact size for you to be able to source from Ebay or the likes, then €10.18 isn't bad considering you may end up buying lots of wrong sizes first - costing you more. It's different if you have one to source the dimensions from, but when flying blind....

Thank you for such a comprehensive reply! It also been useful to see you reference names to supplies, as I've often seen in conversation Ed and Arrans name appear but I've been unsure who they were.

I did spot the fitting for sale on Deloran Go, but wanted to check a few other options first. Now I have seen the fitting I may have some in my air fittings box and if not I will get one from Ed
