1969 Oil Pressure Gauge Block Sender Fitting
« on: July 15, 2013, 06:42:21 PM »
I'm trying to determine the correct oil sender fitting (block side) for a 1969 Camaro with console gauges.  How does this one look and is it missing any pieces or does it appear complete?

I'm assuming you have a small block, so yes, it's correct.

My looks something like that but a little different. Mine has a male end on both sides of the fitting vs a female end on the oil line side.

 Interesting I have the same one I'd like to re-install. So should the male hose fitting have the internal hose sleeve insert in it like the female does that one would get from Paragon?
Yours looks like the hose is gone unless its just clipped flush, does it have a sleeve insert for the hose what configuration did you use?
What is the proper configuration for the male type hose end?

Ok
Here's what I found:
The male style fitting is called a 1/8" double compression fitting. Weatherhead, Edelmann, and Everco all offer replacements for these special fittings.
According to the manufacturer when using plastic tubing use internal tube support, that is so the compression sleeve squeezes tight against line and then internal tube support for a leak free seal. I'll post additional pictures when I get all the parts together. $1.15 a piece on line for the 1/8" double compression fitting.

Lloyd, I want to THANK YOU!  Within a couple of days of you posting the pics of this, I was looking for a brass fitting for the pool and saw this fitting sitting in my misc brass drawer!  So now that I know what it is, it is now in my drawers of parts for my SS.  I just have to find that short section of oil line I saved someplace with the rest of the fitting on it :)

Glad to hear you located the fitting Kevin. Its a tiny, unique, and to me, important detail.

Kevin/Lloyd;
 Can't reuse the 1/8" double compression threaded sleeve nut 5/16-24, once the cone end is compressed its toast. However the block fitting is unique and not available, it is reusable.
New ones are available here online; http://www.fastfittings.com/search?searchwords=22008&searchsmall_5487389=Search
Sleeve number 22008 and fitting 16001 for $2 a piece.

OK I have this fitting now and has a bit of the old brass hardline and my car has a black plastic line to the guage that I thought was OE, is this correct? I have doubts that this will work now or not. I know the small flare nut isnt reuseable but will a new one work with the plastic line?

The plastic line will work with a nut replacement, but it needs the internal line sleeve per the manufacturer.
The nut/cone pinches down on the line.

OK that makes sense now, thanks!
