Here it is. When I look at it in the daylight, it doesn't look any more exposed than the return line connection. Picked up the part from NAPA, I can't really ID the part number, nothing shows up when I cross reference numbers that came with it.

Looks good to me. Pretty close to matching the fitting next to the new one.
I do coat the threads with anti-seize.
Hope your using a flare-nut wrench on those fittings.


Have'n you along, is like loose'n 2 good men

Nothing to worry about there. The threads don't seal anything, the oring does all of the work.

That was THE worst job in the history of worst jobs. I got everything buttoned up, and after a quick warm-up run, noticed my petcock was leaking and there's a little bit of weeping around the fitting at the box. Figured since things warmed up a bit, it may be loose. Got another 1/2-1 turn into it when it was hot. I'll keep an eye on it The petcock is par for the course, there's an O-ring there that doesn't seal well, so I'll worry on it tomorrow.

Think I've got this thing licked... Thanks again, all.
